Now when you visit Israel, you can go to a dinner hosted by a local Israeli family in their home. Just fill out a booking form with Betzavta and you’ll be paired with a family to meet and share in an authentic Israeli meal together.

Do you want to get to know the locals when you visit Israel?

There’s no better way than to share a meal and conversation in someone’s home. A new option for arranging such an encounter online is the recently launched Betzavta.

Betzavta means “together” in Hebrew and it’s meant to bring travelers and locals together and maybe even create friendships.

“The host prepares a home-cooked meal that allows the traveler to taste Israeli homemade dishes and get an impression of what a real Israeli dining table looks like. The Israeli hosts, on the other hand, get the opportunity to meet new people and show their guests a closer, authentic viewpoint of Israel,” says cofounder Ori Pearl.
