I had Joel as a tour guide on my Birthright - Taglit trip for 10 days. Every single day with Joel was another laugh, another insightful comment on modern day Israeli politics, and another great educational lesson about the history of wherever we were. From hikes through the hills to a journey up Masada, Joel had seemingly unlimited energy and drive. His level of personal attention to each of the 48 members of the group was extraordinary, and he even introduced us to his beautiful family. Nowhere else will you find this kind of passion. You can't get a better tour guide than Joel.

Thank you Abe!
I learned a lot from you also - along with everyone I'm still waiting for your linguistics lecture on the subject of Eliezer Ben Yehuda and the development of modern Hebrew!
I hope to see you again soon in Israel

Joel's passion and breadth of knowledge is exemplified in how he interacts with tourists. Joel conveys historical information both with witty humor (such as by role-playing different characters) and facilitating thought provoking conversations. At the same time, Joel has the ability to express multiple viewpoints and remain neutral to different viewpoints expressed. No words can adequately describe just how amazing Joel made our trip. Joel, thank you for making our trip to Israel phenomenal. The trip couldn't have been the same without you!

Deanna thank you!
One of the things that I most enjoy about guiding in Israel is the capacity to learn about ourselves by virtue of the ideas, questions and dilemmas that rise up from the various places that we visit.
Thank you for being open and sharing your own experiences and journey during the trip.

Joel was such an incredible tour guide. He truly cares about the group and puts his heart and soul into everything that he does. I've never met a more passionate person who really loves what he does. I can't say enough good things about him. You'd be crazy not to have him take you through Israel.

One of the best tour guides I've had in Israel. he has excellent knowledge and passion, and will teach you new stuff even in places you've been to before (If you're an Israeli like me). Highly recommended!

For the 10 days that I had Joel as my tour guide, he was an absolute joy to be with and an extremely intelligent man. The way he approaches his tour guide method is not just to show you what's there, but to make you wonder about it. However, in showing you what's there, he shows you everything. He gives you every aspect, every point of view, every challenge, and every explanation. He is fun, funny and cunning in his own way. He also, on a personal level, helped facilitate the most important moment of my life. His level of improvisation and guidance towards making the moment beautiful was perfect. If you have a chance to have this man as your tour guide, I suggest not only taking that opportunity,but also cherishing that chance. He is truly one of a kind.

Gabe, thank you!
I enjoyed so much touring with you. Your ideas thoughts and questions challenged me too; and of course to help you create the perfect moment to propose marriage was such an honor that I will never forget. I hope very much to see you and Amanda again soon in Israel!
