Not completely true - there are different price charts for tourists and for Israelis - so you can't always just take off teh VAT - but even if you do the math that simply - you still come up with a number that makes $11,000 look decent.

Check what Kibbutz Lavi offers. They are expensive but might suit your family better. Checking is free :)

Having just spent Pesach 2014 with a family from Melbourne, I can tell you that this will not only be an expensive holiday, but you'll need to adjust your expectations for touring too. Touring during Chol Ha'Moed will be very, very challenging everywhere in the country.

For sure you're best bet would be to rent an apartment, clean/kosher it yourself (or hire someone to do it for you) and then buy take out food or cook. It will still be expensive as private apartment rentals also are expensive for Pesach but that will be the cheapest. Also book flights early because in general for Pesach time they won't go down only up.

The AACI ( American and Canadians in Israel) always sponsors a number of hotel programs. There are also a number of programs advertised in Torah Tidbits--a publication by the Israel Center ( OU in Israel) Of course you will find nothing now BUT you may be able to find, online, old editions of Torah Tidbits to get an idea of what was offered in 2014. These programs are also run in English! Some provide an option ( at an additional cost) of a second Seder. They are frequently without kitniyot. ( not sure re: gebrochts)

We are traveling to Jerusalem during Pesach/Passover. We have recently found out we have a Jewish blood line. Though we have never practiced Judaism, for we are Christian. We have been told some families let guests take part, even if they are not Jewish in faith. Is it possible their is a program in Jerusalem, that lets guests observe and attend? If so, could you please post this information.

MANYSTATES, I suggest as others may, that you go ahead and start your own thread with your questions. This is because this thread is old, the OP might have changed their plans, and the most important is that I believe you raise questions that are not exactly that same as the OP of this thread.

Yes, Manystates, you should start your own thread.

"Hijacking" this one only makes for confusion, because answers to your question will get mixed up with answers to the OP, who has asked something completely different.

To start a new thread, click on the orange tab "Ask a question" and give the subject line something more specific than Passover 2015 - an indication that you are Christians wanting to attend a Seder.
