Aaron Shaffier

I’m a licensed tour guide who guides groups, families and individuals to all parts of this amazing land called Israel. I specialize in tours designed to bring the Tanach (Bible) and Jewish history to life. I will work with you or your organization to tailor an itinerary to your needs. A tour guide can make or break your experience when visiting Israel. If you are planning a group tour through a tour provider, ask for me by name! You will know that you are getting a guide who is passionate about this land and will go the extra mile to make every member of your group happy. Groups: I work with you and your tour provider to build the ideal itinerary to meet your needs. When speaking to your tour provider, ask for me by name, that way I can be involved in the planning stages of your itinerary. Often tour providers want to impress you with how many sites they can squeeze into a short trip. I will work with you and your provider to create a realistic itinerary that will allow your group to truly enjoy their visit to the Holy Land. Families and Individuals: I will work with you to create an itinerary that will make your whole family happy. I will help you find the best options for lodging whether it be a hotel or bed and breakfast (Tzimmer) and I will help you find restaurants that cater to your price level and any special needs like Kashrut. When you take me as a guide for your family, you will rent and drive your own vehicle and I will guide you. This saves you a lot of money. Guides who drive their own vehicle charge significantly more because they are doing two jobs at the same time, tour guide and taxi driver. SOME FACTS ABOUT ME I am originally from Los Angeles, CA so I’m a native English speaker. I am a husband and father of 9. We made Aliyah to Israel in 2007. I am a Chabad Chassid.

Hotels in Be'er Sheva


Le Riad Be'er Sheva

Le Riad hotel is located in a 110-year-old building in the Old City of Be'er Sheva. The building has undergone several transformations since it was purchased by Mimi Osedon and became the vacation home it is today. Mimi, who was born in Morocco and immigrated with her family at the age of six months, grew up in Be'er Sheva, moved to Tel Aviv after the army and established a successful beaded jewelry and leather clothing business. After getting married, giving birth to her daughter, and living abroad in South Africa and Kenya, Mimi returned to Be'er Sheva. When she first returned, she opened a bridal dress shop, which burned down in a fire. Because Mimi had always dreamed of openeing an authentic and refied Moroccan accommodation, she took this tragety and an oppotunity to fulfull that dream. With the help of her daughter, she began renovating the burned-out building, turning it into the guesthouse it is today. They decided to flow with the natural features of the building, which has an area of ​​200 square meters and is built around an inner courtyard with an area of ​​64 square meters, like the inner courtyard (Riyadh) that characterizes traditional Moroccan construction. All rooms revolve around an inner courtyard including the windows that face inwards, this creates intimacy for the host. The authentic riad includes an inner courtyard with a garden and a source of running water in the form of a fountain, a spring, a waterfall, a pool, and more. Their plan was to travel to Morocco and other destinations and gather everything needed to turn the ancient structure into an authentic fine accommodation. Everything from the Moroccan bismuth tiles overing the yard to the luxurious sofas and carpets are authentic and improted from from Morocco! You will find nothing but luxury and authenticity while staying at hote Anilevich!
