Jerusalem Tour Guide

I was born in Tel Aviv but raised in Jerusalem. My family goes back six generations in Israel. I attended high school in Jerusalem and got my university degree in Jerusalem, Middle Eastern Studies – History of the Middle East & Arabic, Language and Literature. I served in the I.D.F as a career officer. My last position in the military was the I.D.F Spokesman Representative in the Jerusalem Region. I retired from the army with the rank of Lt. Col. After leaving the military, I was asked by the legendary mayor of Jerusalem Teddy Kollek to join his staff as his advisor on Arab Affairs in Jerusalem.I worked with Mr. Kollek for nine years and one year with his successor the newly-elected Mayor Ehud Olmert. This period was a great experience and a golden opportunity to learn about Jerusalem’s problems and to know much more about the Arab residents and the Palestinian communities of the city.
The tours I offer to my visitors include personal stories and personal experience which I take from my time in City Hall. During the many years I lived and worked in the city of Jerusalem, I gained a lot of knowledge and experience which I would like to share with my visitors. A tour in Jerusalem, every tour, is a special fascinating journey full of interesting stories. Some will raise a smile, while others raise serious thoughts about the future of the city.
