“I want to express our deepest appreciation to you for hosting a beautiful, meaningful Pesach for our family. We had a marvelous time. We originally thought that the location of Neve Ilan, being so close to home, would be a negative. It turned out to be a real positive. It’s a keeper!”
Dr. Simcha Fass, Jerusalem
Thank you so much for a very enjoyable end of Chag. All the family had a great time, especially the toddlers, who had quality time at the Moadon. Many thanks also for providing us with our own room for the family Minyan – it was much appreciated. We look forward to future programmes, and we send best regards to Esther and yourself.
Phyllis and John Graham, Jerusalem
Susan and I, together with our 5 kids, have spent, I believe, 5 Pesahim with you and Esther, starting in Beer Sheva and following you to Yam Hamelach. We have enjoyed each and every time. I thank you for the unsurpassed effort that you exert to make each and every one of your guests feel special and important to you.
You consistently strive for and achieve excellence in the organization of the religious experience, including a balabatish davening, and interesting and sincere Rabbinical participants. You invest in quality and enjoyable entertainment programs. The food is plentiful and generous.
Most importantly, the nature of the guests you attract cover the spectrum of the Orthodox communities in Israel and US/England etc., yet you insist on and achieve a comfortable live-and-let-live environment so that all feel at home and comfortable. These Pesahim have added an enormous amount to our family over the years and we just felt it was appropriate to pause and say
kol hakavod and thanks.”
Susan and Jacob Weiss, Jerusalem
“We had this idea to get the whole family together and spend Pesach in the staggering beauty of the Dead Sea. One decision which changed the lives of all forty of us. We rediscovered ourselves, re-acquainted ourselves with cousins, uncles and aunts. Enjoyed the fun of each other’s children and all this under the tender loving supervision of everyone’s favourite family – Zvi and Esther Lapian.”
Rabbi Michael Pollak, London
“My family and I have spent wonderful Pesach’s with Zvi and Esther since they started with their groups in Beersheva many years ago. They are marvelous hosts and go out of their way to make your stay special. The food is good, the company friendly and they have become firm friends – what more can one say!”
Selma Shrank, London
“Just had to tell you what a wonderful treat it was being with you and what a great Pessach we had! Many, many thanks for everything…you sure ran an amazing operation and I have only the utmost praise and admiration for the way you organized and handled everything. Really, thank you… lots of people are singing your praises.”
Pam J. Shatzkes, London & Jerusalem
“We have been to other programs and by FAR the Lapians surpass all others. The programming was on a high level, varied, in good taste, and had something for everyone. The yachas was incredible, down to the thought that went into choosing our table companions. And the entertainment? How shall I put it: “ein li milim!” But the most important indicator, my husband, who doesn’t like ANYTHING, was full of praise for the Lapians and plans to return to them whenever possible.”
