Our Story - The Israel Adventure in the Comfort of Your Home

The position of parents who care about Israel is a bit complicated. 
On the one hand, America or Canada is their home, and part of their identities.
On the other hand, Israel is where their roots come from, it’s their people's home, a core part of their culture, values and history.

Imagine a fun family experience where everybody is dedicated to a new, one-of-a-kind task: exploring Israel. 

Whether your children are very interested in Israel already, or whether they begin rolling their eyes the minute you start talking about it, our Israel surprise boxes will become the experience of a lifetime for you and your family. Our boxes help children disconnect from their mobile games, and start engaging via family activities with the best places, people, food and culture that the Holy Land has to offer.

Our core values are to help people experience Israel and learn about it from the locals, all while having fun with fabulous activities, awesome souvenirs and tons of surprises.

#Israel_is_an_experience is our motto and the name of our community. Join us.
