Winter in Israel is the best time to visit our north with the snow capped peaks of the Hermon, and many beautiful walks in forested areas featuring streams and for us fine waterfalls. We took a long weekend and posted ourselves at Lavi known for it's catering to the religious

Thanks for sharing your experience with others! Kibbutz Lavi Hotel is in deed the ideal place to stay in if you want to tour the north of the country. From Friday afternoon to Saturday night the hotel observes the traditional rules of the Shabbat which is especially convenient for orthodox Jews, but of course we cater to everyone, and all our guests receive the same personal attention regardless of their religious affiliation or belief.

While this is a religious kibbutz run hotel and lots of modern and ultra orthodox visit, we as largely secular Jews felt very welcomed and comfortable. Terrific rooms and bathrooms. The Israeli/American buffet style breakfast goes on and on and on.

It was an OK place to stay. The room was decent and clean and did like the grounds the hotel was located. You can tell the hotel is well maintained. I didn’t care for the breakfast that much. Kibbutz Lavi is geared more toward the more religious crowd by catering to their

From their website (which also has a photo of the current certificate of kashrut): It is our pleasure to host you. Our hotel is noted for its very strict high-level Kashruth which is supervised by Rabbi Joseph Chaim Rosenblatt, Rabbi of the Lower Galilee. INFORMATION CONCERNING THE OBSERVANCE OF KASHRUT IN LAVI KIBBUTZ HOTEL: We have an exclusively Jewish kitchen staff, which consists mainly of observant, G-D fearing “Shomer Shabbat” Jews. All the products and ingredients, with the exception of poultry, meat, and dairy products, have one of three hechshers: Eda Charedit, Rabbi Rubin, Rabbi Landau. All leafy vegetables are insect-free products with Eda Charedit / Rubin Hechsher. They undergo an additional inspection and washing, according to Badatz instructions. All dairy products are under Mehadrin supervision, including that of the Mehadrin committee of Tnuva led by Rabbi Witman. (Some of the products are made locally with the above Mehadrin hechsher.) Bread and rolls are supplied by bakeries under the supervision of Badatz Eda Charedit, Rav Rubin & Rav Landau. Products baked in our own kitchen – Flour is sifted by a machine which meets the standards of the most meticulous kashrut requirements and challa is set aside as required. We have a special mashgiach on the premises to supervise the meticulous inspection of all products entering the kitchen – including legumes, nuts and all whole condiments. The meat served in the Hotel is imported with Chalak Mehadrin hechsher of the Chief Rabbinate, in accordance with the severe restrictions of Maran Bet Yoseph. Poultry products are from the “Off Tov” abbatoir, under the complete supervision of Rabbi A.D. Auerbach of Tiberias confirmed by the Hotel Rabbis. One may order in advance meat and poultry products with the hechsher of Rav Rubin. It is not permitted to bring food or beverages from outside the hotel to the hotel restaurant & the bar area. Any questions should be directed to the Hotel Mashgiach, Yakov Chayun, tel. 050-3231174

I am not sure what you mean by H or C. I can tell you that I seem to remember that the bathroom could handle either the standard US plug or the standard two pronged Middle Eastern type of plug or with 120 and 210 volts to allow for shavers of either type format. This would avoid having to find a transformer. I believe all the other outlets were set up to handle the standard Middle East two rounded ended plugs with only 210 volt service. Please feel free to discuss this further, but you get better answers by contacting the hotel directly.

"700 Level rooms are on the same level as the reception. Easy in and out"
"Make sure to ask for a view...I don't know if every room has one."
"We loved the views to the mountains. Rooms felt like home but not top of the line luxury. Great vibe and so quiet at night."
"There are three wings."
"The Hadar wing on the ground floor, with a little garden, are the best, but also the most expensive."
