One of the most unique experiences one can have on a visit to Israel. Hands on experience working with professional artisans to create beautiful, functional pieces of Judaica to take home with you. Nothing "touristy" about it. A must do.

We had such a wonderful time at the wood shop! Everyone was lovely and our kids loved what they made (so did we!!). A real winner of an activity if you are looking to do something different in Israel.
