Wanted to thank you again for the wonderful evening we shared with you and Ronen. It was truly a highlight of our trip with the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey. Your personal story touched so many of us.

I had the privilege of being a guest in your fabulous home with the Temple Israel Memphis group. Meeting you and dining on your rooftop, overlooking such magnificent scenery is a memory that will live in my mind and soul forever. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Thank you again so much. We surely did enjoy staying in your lovely “zimmer.” Even in such a short stay, we began to feel the magic of Tsfat and we were starting to feel right at home! We’ve never had such a spiritual and joyful Shabbat! Fondly, Jeff, Lyn & Gavi Springut, Rochester NY
Dear Genine and Rony,
Thank you for the most incredible Bar Mitzvah ever! We are still on a high from our wonderful weekend in Safed. When people ask me how the Bar Mitzvah was, I am truly at a loss for words, because it was — in every way (spiritually, aesthetically, culinarily) — beyond anything I could ever have imagined. Everyone (American and Israeli alike) left Safed totally amazed at how perfectly every detail of the weekend had been executed, but of course — that is all attributable to you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for building us through the planning of the weekend and for making Jonathan’s Bar Mitzvah so absolutely beautiful from start to finish. We, and all of our guests, will remember it forever!
With love and tremendous thanks, Brenda Bryn, Miami, FL May 2008
Wine and dine in Zfat.
The BarEl family has a lovely home, walking distance to the synagogues and the Rimon Inn. They host groups for lunch or supper. The food is superb – a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach.
Genine BarEl will address your group – tell of her expeiences and how they arrived in Zfat (via US and India).
Very highly recommended.
Ruhama Alter, tour guide, Israel
Thank you again for an amazing Shabbos experience in Tzfat!

Dear Genine and Rony,
First I want to thank you for creating one of the most memorable,meaningful experiences of our recent Legislative Mission to Israel. Being able to share Shabbat dinner in your home was a wonderful treat
and gave the lawmakers a glimpse of Jewish life that could not be replicated in a hotel.
Lisa Yoram, Jewish Federation of Greater Houston
You have both been incredible. We are so appreciative!
I was on the second Emunah cooking mission. I just celebrated my 50th birthday and
I have to tell you that to date- one of the best meals I ever had was a
picnic spread prepared by Rony in a garden overlooking an archeological
excavations. I do not remember the details of the place, but I still
remember what it felt like to eat outdoors on china, on a real tablecloth in
Israel, all prepared by our own personal chef. It was amazing! So on a
personal note, I feel privileged to have received your email. It is our
honor to include you both in the Emunah cookbook (due to be released July 2008).
Thanks so much again!
I just want to thank you and your husband for such an incredible evening at your lovely home. The food was delicious and the ambience was breathtaking. The musicians made the evening even more special. I will most definitely recommend your hospitality to others. Thank you for all of your help.
We came for a weekend to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Altogether we were 14 people, so we reserved 4 suites.
The place is gorgeous! Each room is different, all of them are large, lots of room, and they have paid a let of effort in all of the small details. The staff was very helpful, always asking and making sure that things are just fine.
The price includes breakfast, and they served us lots of salads, breads etc. a real treat!
