Why Breaking Bread Journeys
Our journeys take you deep into the local social and cultural landscape than you thought possible. We take great pride in that we source our tour days directly with locals and as a result sorely needed funds go directly to local families as well as to vetted NGO’s that directly assist many local communities. On our programs you will visit on and off the beaten path sites that are fascinating and you can take assurance that are programs will offer a balanced narrative, and, of course, you will break bread along the way!

“An amazing tour that gave us an in depth look at the small components of life in Jerusalem. It was very special to learn and see different cultures and religious experiences and share special foods from the region.”
Eden Goldberger, spouse of US Ambassador to Egypt
“The chefs for peace was a highlight. This non political group of chefs were each special and devoted in their own way. We had the opportunity to explore the souk with an Armenian chef, a Palestinian chef and a Jewish chef, where we picked up all sorts of local produce. It was fascinating hearing about their backgrounds, discussing food and then going to a restaurant kitchen and preparing a sumptuous dinner from what we had sourced.
We also visited the home of a Palestinian family in Beit Safafa where we met a wonderful woman and her three delightful, polite, intelligent and hospitable children. We heard her story and as simplistic as it may seem now, hearing her say she was a mother of three children (as I am), she had the same aspirations for her children as I did for mine, and I felt if politics were left to the female population, perhaps there could be a peace.”
