    Hello Joanna,
    I had seen something previously on your site which I can’t find now. My mother is coming to Jerusalem this week for a vacation and would like to focus on activities rather then tiyulim (at her age and stage, and she is going alone).
    You had a Machane Yehudah tasting tour in yeshiva week, which sounded right up her alley. Can you send me information? Also, we are strictly kosher. So how does that type of tour work with hashgacha for kasherus etc… please get back to me as I’d love to book this for her if its doable .
    thank you
