5 Great Tips For Organizing An Unforgettable Event In Israel

If you are getting ready to start planning for your special event and want to make sure that everything goes just perfectly, read on for some great tips. Israel hosts a multitude of special events and is often chosen because of its spirituality as well as for its amazing scenery.

1. Start Planning! Organizing a bat mitzvah or a wedding in Israel takes time and it is thus recommended that you start planning at least six months in advance, although starting a year in advance is not unusual (summer months are extremely busy).

2. Make A Guests List! Once you have the number of guests you will be able to determine what budget you need and choose the right location accordingly.

3. Set A (Realistic) Budget! A budget will help you stay within your monetary means and thus make the right decisions as you go along. Remember, there are venues to be booked, decorations to be placed, food to be ordered, and professionals that need to be paid, just to name a few services that require advance payments.

4. Location!  It is important that you feel completely comfortable with the location you choose and we can always find the perfect place for your budget.

Israel may be geographically small – but it is culturally diverse, and the range of options provides something for just about every taste and interest. For example, you can celebrate a wedding by the beach, a bat mitzvah in one of Jerusalem’s luxurious hotels, or a bar mitzvah in Masada. Keep in mind that distances are very short and if properly planned, you get the best of everything Israel has to offer.

If you find that you need some extra help choosing a location a great idea is to hire a local event planner as we are familiar with the area you have chosen and can be of great service.

5. Focus on what’s important:

  • Be aware of your guests. For example, if most of your guests speak Spanish then getting a Spanish-speaking Rabbi is a great idea so everyone can understand the ceremony.
  • Bar/bat mitzvahs should be centered around the young man or woman and celebrated in a way that he or she can fully enjoy.
