Monica Cohenca and Tsachi Melamed- Your Event Planners in Israel

How did you get to be event planners?

Monica: I started to organize events for the United Nations Development Program in South America after I finished my Psychology degree. After making aliya I worked in conference organization and handling of international conference speakers and delegations at one of Israel’s major newspapers. There I became an expert at event organizing, working with people from all over the world, and at the same time, was exposed to the best Israeli suppliers from the industry (catering, décor, logistics, etc.).

Tsachi: I started organizng private parties at a very young age until I became the producer of the most important business conferences in Israel eight years ago. I always enjoyed selecting the best professionals from the different fields involved in major events and seeing how, after months of work, it all comes together perfectly on the day of the event.

After almost 10 years of organizing corporate and private events alike for numerous companies both in South America and in Israel, we decided to use our skills to best serve couples and families from abroad or those who have made aliya, to celebrate weddings, bar & bat mitzvahs and other social events in Israel.

Can you tell me how you’re different from all the other event planners out there?

Monica: I’ve have been there, I’ve had to overcome all the difficulties of organizing events in a country that was somehow new to me and to everything I knew. I know how to connect with people from totally different backgrounds, with different tastes and styles.

Tsachi: I’ve been in the industry for over 10 years. I know the mentality, master the language and have all the personal and professional connections that can guarantee you an event of the highest standards.

As our client you will get the perfect combination of backgrounds, experience and good taste. You will get our full attention so that together we can create the wedding you want, the best bat mitzvah experience for your daughter and a meaningful bar mitzva for your son. And just in case you don’t know exactly what you want, we are great at helping you discover it!

What does this mean as a bride?

It means that we know exactly what you as a bride who moved to Israel or coming from abroad expects for her celebration. Your way of doing things is different and your mindset too. Working with Cohenca & Melamed you will spare you the extra hours on hours choosing between vendors that you don’t really know, negotiating a contract with each one of them and any other possible mishaps along the way.

As one of our brides you will have more time to focus on what’s important and your stress levels will be greatly reduced as you get exactly what you are looking for. Our specialty is helping you through the process, so that you can enjoy the planning and the wedding day while everything else is taken care of for you.

What does this mean for a family celebrating a bar or bat mitzvah in Israel?

As a parent you want to create a memorable experience for your child. You want him/her to connect to their heritage, have a meaningful ceremony and a joyful celebration afterwards. And if you are coming to celebrate in Israel from another country, you probably want to tour the country and have a fun and amazing family vacation while you are here for such a special time.

With Monica Cohenca and Tsachi Melamed you will have the ceremony and party you always wanted because we specialize at understanding what’s important for each family. There will be no unnecessary surprises. We work with your budget and style until  you are completely satisfied.

This all sounds so wonderful. But, it also seems expensive. Are we going to be able to afford this?

Ask yourself if you can afford to waste days of your time researching for places, professionals and deals, while getting frustrated for not finding the information you need when you need it, and even worse, for missing great opportunities because you don’t have the right contacts. We will save you all those problems, plus the additional costs of not knowing about the best deals you can get from the different vendors and unique venues. Get the satisfaction and peace of mind of coming to your event as a guest and knowing that every detail will be taken care of.

This sounds exactly like what we’ve been looking for. So how does this process work?

The process begins with a free consultation call where you tell us about the event you are planning. If we see that we are a fit, we proceed to sign a contract and start planning your event.

We have a few more questions before getting started. Can I call or email you to discuss this further?

Feel free to email or call us if you have further questions you’d like to discuss before getting started!
