Highlights from last years’ tours

We had the privilege to join Nachliel’s exciting guided tour at the Metropolitan Museum, which dealt with Ancient Egypt in advance of Pesach. Nachliel connected between the archaeological artifacts and the Exodus story in a professional and exciting way, while displaying  impressive scientific, historic and archaeological background knowledge, and fluency in Tanach and Talmudic literature. Nachliel did it with a unique sweetness, engaging the crowd and adapting the content to the various age groups. The tour for us was a wonderful and innovative preparation, and thought-provoking; in advance of the Passover holiday.

Nachliel facilitated a fantastic tour for us on a very busy Sunday in the Met. His presentation was thorough and engaging and the two hours flew by. As a former teacher, I was particularly impressed with his ability to differentiate the content for our diverse group of participants with ages ranging from 7 to 55+ years old…His jokes were on point but more important, his interpretation and retelling of history was relatable to each and everyone of us. We connected to the exhibits and considered the implications of what stood before us in ways we never did before…

An amazing tour by Nachliel. Using his intellect, humor and vision he was able to bring the story of Pesach back to life. New insights to our slavery and journey to freedom were presented beautifully.

Thank you! I highly recommend and looking forward to future tours
