About
Israel Experts

Israel Experts has been running Birthright Israel trips for more than 16 years, since the second season of Birthright Israel’s existence. We pride ourselves on organizing high-quality trips with the best tour guides and educators in the business. In order to guarantee the wonderful experience you’ll get once you land in Israel, we also have top-notch informal educators and experienced tour operators working behind the scenes making sure that your Birthright Israel trip goes off without a hitch.

The company was founded in 1999 by Joe Perlov, a well-known and respected informal Jewish educator who was interested in organizing trips to Israel that would take people to “Beyond the Obvious” sites and to meet Israelis from a wide spectrum of backgrounds. The company has brought tens of thousands of groups and individuals to Israel with congregations, Jewish Federations, universities, Hillels, families, Bar/Bat Mitzvah tours and of course, Birthright Israel.

Whether you’re looking for the best overview of the country possible, a trip with a culinary twist to it, or one filled with adventure – we have a trip for you. Our trips will take you to the major highlights that you may (or may not!) have heard about your whole life (the Old City and Western/Wailing Wall, Masada, the Dead Sea, Tzfat) as well as to the modern “must sees” like the young, hip and thriving city of Tel Aviv. We’ll introduce you to Israelis that represent the complex mosaic that makes up this society, who you can ask any and all pressing questions you may have. And of course, we’ll give you the opportunity to fill your Instagram feed with camel selfies, covered-in-mud Dead Sea group pics, that bite of your first amazing falafel and more!

We look forward to being the ones you choose to travel to Israel with on your Birthright Israel trip!
