Our Story

Sar-El is a unique company in many ways, but what really sets us apart from others, is that we want to see you connect to what God has for you in Israel. The owner of Sar-El Tours, Samuel Smadja’s heart’s desire is that you will have more than a tour, but rather an experience, which will connect you with the land, the people, and the scriptures. One that will give you a memory to take home that will connect you with Israel for the rest of your life. Your understanding of the scriptures will be changed, and you will never read the Bible the same way again as you walk in the very places mentioned in Scripture such as Capernaum, the Mt. of Olives, and Jerusalem!

By the grace of God, Samuel has built Sar-El from scratch over 20 years so that we are now one of the largest agencies focused on Christian Tourism to Israel. We are unique, proven, and committed to providing you with the very best experience of Israel, the Land of the Bible.
