While traveling and visiting far-off exotic (and even the not-so-exotic) destinations, did you search for the non-touristy places, or just wish you could have an interesting conversation with a local? Did you ever fancy ending up in a small, authentic local restaurant and mixing it with local diners? Well in Tel Aviv it’s now very possible to do just that – with Betzavta!
Betzavta means “together” in Hebrew, with the goal behind Betzavta being to bring tourists and locals together, creating true friendships through a unique experience.
This great little project lets Israelis open their home and kitchen and invite you over for a casual Israeli dinner – a great opportunity to get to know about each other’s cultures and lives, find out more about Israel and its many faces, and reveal more about your own home.
All you have to do is pay for the ingredients and come with a good appetite!
The founders, while traveling around the world themselves, always found that mingling with locals was the highlight of their travels and that some of the long-lasting relationships which were created led to more meetings years after. As a result of these connections, the Betzavta dream came true and now serves as the platform for travelers and locals to MEET, EAT, and SHARE!
So far travelers from Europe, the U.S and Asia have joined the Betzavta experience. If you are looking for a unique experience during your time in Israel, Betzavta might be the exact thing for you!
