Tours depend of flight plans

The pilgrimage is a deep biblical approach. It takes its roots in the tradition of the patriarchs and the prophets.

The Jewish holidays, whose origin goes back before the Antiquity, are celebrated in Israel, in various ways.

They translate into customs and traditions that can be traditional or not;

they print their mark to a lot of aspects of the national life.
