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.
If you would like to visit the hotel, to see for yourself its beautiful setting and excellent facilities, we would be happy to arrange a visit.
Neve Ilan has the most amazing Kids 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 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.
The kashrut of the program is Rabbanut Mehadrin Mateh Yehuda, with top quality, glatt kosher cuisine, with Shmura Matza provided for the Sedarim.
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.
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. 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.
We will do our best to accommodate other special dietary requests – please notify us well in advance.
