About Travelujah

Customized travel. Authentic experiences. Life changing journeys.

Meet Elisa, Founder and CEO

Adventurous, curious, deeply committed to connecting people to Israel by creating life changing travel experiences. 


I love transforming lives by crafting and organizing exciting Israel tours that are rich in history, culture, faith and adventure.


Originally from Detroit, I completed an M.S. in Hospitality Management. For over 25 years I consulted on hotel projects for major travel brands, developers, organizations and lenders and developed sustainable, market and community-driven travel products.  In 2005 I fulfilled my dream of moving to Israel with my family and soon after, launched Travelujah. 


Having logged thousands of hours traveling around Israel on tourism consulting projects for many organizations and hotels, I knew the country offered so much more than just the known highlights. So I created Travelujah in order to inspire discerning and curious travelers to enjoy lesser- seen yet highly intriguing aspects of Israel: to experience the hidden gems, local culinary specialties, off-the beaten-track sites and jaw-dropping natural landscapes – all worry-free, comfortably and safely escorted by one of our expert tour guides. Since that time, I’ve worked with philanthropic organizations, universities, private families, as well as the travel trade families to create special journeys to Israel.
