Enjoy a magical Pesach vacation with Zvi Lapian at the wonderful Neve Ilan Hotel in the Jerusalem Hills.Zvi & Esther Lapian have been running premium Pesach programs in Israel for over 20 years. Our Family Pesach Programs are renowned across the Jewish world for our commitment to well-organized prayer three times a day, a high level interesting lecture program, and fun-filled, cutting edge entertainment. A day camp for children run by English speaking madrichot enables parents to enjoy all these activities.
In April 2024 we will offer two programs – one in Northern Israel at the Hacienda Forest View Hotel, and one in Central Israel at the Neve Ilan Hotel.
THE NEVE ILAN HOTEL
This beautiful hotel offers 172 recently upgraded, spacious rooms on four floors. It has extensive gardens and panoramic views of the Jerusalem Hills. It is conveniently located in Central Israel within easy reach of all of Israel’s main attractions, but with all the valuable advantages of a calm and pastoral setting.
The Neve Ilan Hotel is one of three highly professionally-run C-Hotels set in rural locations around Israel, and their expert management team will be supported by Zvi Lapian’s own event management team.
IDEAL LOCATION IN CENTRAL ISRAEL
The hotel is located within the peaceful village of Neve Ilan, yet near Route 1 and within easy driving distance of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Ben Gurion Airport. Set in the Jerusalem Hills, surrounded by beautiful forests, it offers the ideal pastoral location for Chol Hamoed hikes along unspoiled nature trails and visits to natural springs (maayanot). Neve Ilan is also conveniently located for quick visits to Bet Shemesh and Modi’in, and there is a direct bus service to Jerusalem.
DESIGNED FOR FAMILIES
Neve Ilan has the most amazing Kid’s Club we have ever seen, equipped with a wide range of toys for every age group, including a mini-cinema and the latest X-box computer games. During Pesach we will have a day camp, with English- speaking madrichim running children’s activities every day.
The hotel is configured conveniently for families with many adjoining bedrooms, family suites and garden rooms. There are options for Family Sedarim in either shared or private dining rooms (available on a first-come, first-served basis). The hotel’s spacious Bet Knesset adjoins the gardens with additional options for outdoor seating.
Relax with your family in its many indoor and outdoor spaces in the lobby, or in one of the “cozy corners”. You can also enjoy a drink on the hotel’s awesome terrace overlooking the magical pastoral landscape.
Zvi Lapian’s Pesach Programs are renowned for paying attention to every detail, particularly to the religious aspects of Pesach. Davening takes place in a comfortable setting for men and women, and the schedule is designed for the convenience of the guests. Zvi brings his own Mashgiach to oversee the kashrut, and we are one of the few programs in Israel that prepares ‘gebrocht’ dishes using Shmura matza meal.
The kashrut of the program is Rabbanut Mehadrin Mateh Yehuda, with top quality, glatt kosher cuisine, using only shmura matza meal and without kitniyot, with Shmura Matza provided for the Sedarim. We will do our best to accommodate other special dietary requests – please notify us well in advance.
We are planning a full program of lectures and shiurim that are open to all. We keep the atmosphere relaxed and tolerant – live and let live! We try to accommodate families with special requirements, and Zvi goes to great lengths to make sure that every guest feels relaxed and happy.
THE PERFECT PESACH VACATION
During Chol Hamoed, guests at the Neve Ilan Hotel will be well-placed to enjoy all the attractions that Israel has to offer, and all the special events taking place in Jerusalem during Pesach.
Our guests will have access to the heated swimming pool and sauna, with some hours set aside for separate swimming. We will also provide a full program of activities for children, plus daily entertainment for all the family.
On Shabbat and Chag we will enjoy stimulating shiurim and lectures in English and Hebrew from our scholars in residence. Sumptuous Yom Tov meals will be served on Shabbat and Chag (full board is included in our pricing) with breakfast and dinner served every day during Chol Hamoed.
