This was fantastic fun for the entire family. We visited with kids ranging in age from 2 to 17, as well as adults. All had a great time, and Uri was so patient and engaging getting everyone involved.
Highly Recommend!

The mezuzah making was a phenomenal experience and highly recommended for all ages! Uri teaches you all about the mitzvah of mezuzah and then guides you along as you carve, sand and design your very own mezuzah case. This experience was greatly enjoyed and I recommend it highly!
Enjoy your trip.

Great experience with Uri making mezuzot. We learned about the history of mezuzot and the writing process and then proceeded to making our own wood cases. There were enough work stations and tools for all of us and Uri was patient and showed us how to work with the wood to prepare it. The young kids were fascinated and excited. Fun activity for the whole family 😀

We (parents and two kids) visited Uri's shop on June 9, 2022 and had a wonderful experience. Uri was very helpful, gave us his full attention, and we were able to bring home beautiful mezuza covers. The woodworking was a lot of fun.

We absolutely love love loved this activity.
Uri brought the Mitzvah of Mezuzah to Life for us.
Uri was so kind and encouraging and taught us how to chisel and sand our mezuzah cases. We really enjoyed every part, especially decorating and painting our cases. This activity is a MUST if you want to make your trip to Israel meaningful.

Uri started by giving us a fun quiz with questions the kids enjoyed trying to answer and they learned from as well. We then did some really fun woodworking including carving and sanding, and the we had loads of fun painting our creations. Overall, this was a really fantastic way to end our day trip. Thanks, Uri!

I had so much fun at this workshop. The wood-shop is just outside Jerusalem. Easy to get to by bus or car.

I was with friends, there was also a family with younger kids.

We learned so much about wood and the history and meaning of mezuzas.

Uri Kalfa is a warm and patient teacher who took us through a workshop to make our own mezuza. It was my first time creating something out of olive wood!

This is an off-the-beaten-path activity for an Israel trip and I highly recommend it.
