Edith is a Jerusalem-based licensed Israel Tour Guide who came to Israel from France 40 years ago
She guides tours not only in Jerusalem (in the various neighborhoods, the Old City…) but throughout the country.
If you travel on your own, in couples, small groups or families; if you are tourists, businessmen, new or old immigrants, Israelis …she is the right person for you. She speaks Hebrew, French and English.
When she discovered the “Women and Stories” project, she decided to include visits with hosts in their homes: first in Jerusalem and then throughout the country.
Today, she offers a formula, which combines home hospitality experience, the opportunity to hear fascinating stories and meet people coming from different communities (Kurds, Moroccans, Yemenis, ultra-Orthodox, Arabs …) with a large variety of topics: folklore, daily life, Jewish customs, art, cooking and more. …
The visit includes hot drinks, a light meal, a Saturday dinner or a gourmet dinner.
Most visitors are very surprised by the variety of cultures in the country.
Edith also hosts in her home and offers a trip in the area where she lives: the old train station, the promenade, the German colony, …. with a coffee break.
At home, she talks about her life on matters as diverse as : computer engineer, life in the settlement of Tekoa, the establishment of the El David-Nokdim settlement, a trip to the Soviet Union in 1978, a visit to Jewish families and Refuseniks who wanted to immigrate to Israel and were harassed by the Russian government which did not allow them to leave. This visit to the Soviet Union strengthened her understanding of the value of freedom !!!
She can guide you in any place you wish in Israel.
