About Us

Hi, I'm Avital and I created Israel Kids. I am a trained social worker by trade, but after moving to Raanana three years ago, I thought, wow! There is so much happening for kids here and it'll take me a week just to muddle through the Hebrew find out what's going on! I thought wouldn't it be great to have all the kids activities in one central location, in English? I also thought if people could find all the services they need in one place, it would make people's lives so much easier!

That's how the idea for Israel Kids was born in February 2011.

With our directory, events page, and blog, we've been hitting 10,000+ clicks per month!

Now you can submit kid- and family-related businesses on our get listed page. 

With the help of some wonderful contributors, we are also able to tell you in detail about many different kids activities and events around Israel and also give you some creative tips for crafts at home. 

We offer coupons and even partnered up with a fantastic online store, to bring you kids toys and essentials right to your door! 

You can sign up for our popular weekly newsletter (see signup box at right) to have the latest IsraelKids news delivered straight to your inbox!

If you like what you see here, please share with your friends and follow us on facebook. 

I'd love other moms out there to get involved and share their own experiences, so send me an email at avital@israelkids.co.il if you are interested. 

Thank you to all of you for being such patient, loyal readers, and I'm looking forward to continuing to provide you with the most up-to-date, helpful information on kids activities and anything family in Israel!
