The Kosher Travel Club, a joint production of Eddie's Travel and Shai Bar Ilan Geographical
Tours, invites you to spectacular Scandinavia, the great land of the Vikings, which is now
divided into a number of countries. The Scandinavian Peninsula is a massive expanse that
offers travelers the most stunning scenery available anywhere in the world, especially in
the west. It's a mixture of diverse human cultures and architecturally interesting cities
attuned to the local climate, alongside small, pastoral fishing villages. Most of the tour will
concentrate on Scandinavia's amazing natural beauty, from the fjords that cross its
landscape to the Troll's Ascent, to the remainder of an ancient glacier that once covered
this area during the ice age, and on to lofty mountains that create a wild and impressive
background for everything else. Another part of the tour is dedicated to the majestic
capital cities of this area of the world: Oslo and Stockholm.

Kashrut on Tours

Kosher food is provided to our travelers on all our tours. We work with the local Rabbinate
to provide Hashgacha for all local ingredients and fresh meat and poultry. In some cases, we
fly in kosher food from Israel and other sources, depending on the destination of the tour.
We do not guarantee Pat Israel and Chalav Israel for all destinations.

In many destinations we have our own crockery and cutlery. Where we don't, we provide
disposables at the meals. When we cook in Hotel kitchens, we ensure proper Kashering and
we use our own kitchenware on kashered and covered surfaces. All this is done under the
strict supervision of our trained staff/guides who function as our Mashgichim.

Our travelers enjoy gourmet meals prepared by our team including fresh local fish, fruit, and
vegetables. This is an integral part of Jewish travel. We make great efforts to assure that our
travelers will experience local foods first-hand, while maintaining stringent observance of
Kashrut laws on all occasions.

Rabbi Menahem Fogel

A native of Tel Aviv-Jaffa, Menahem Fogel served as a pulpit rabbi in South Africa and
Canada before returning to Israel in 1984 to take up the position of spokesman of Yad
Vashem, in Jerusalem, a position he held for six years.

Since that time he has held senior positions in both the public and private sectors developing
interactive computer systems for museums around the world. He also lived and worked in
the USA, Netherlands, Austria, UK and India. A lifelong yearning for travel led to his
becoming a Tour Manager in 2000 and developed expertise tourism to Japan & China,
Alaska, Canadian Rockies and Africa. Recently he took on the added role of Rav Hamachshir
for The Kosher Travel Club to ensure the highest standards of Kashrut are implemented on
all our Kosher Tours.

For any questions about Kashrut please feel free to email menahemf@netvision.net.il
