Rehearsal Dinner Recommendations Across Israel

While a Rehearsal Dinner is not customary for Israeli weddings, the tradition of eating dinner with immediate family, the bridal party, and out-of-town guests the night before the wedding is often practiced in many western weddings, so it’s not a surprise we often get asked by readers for some reccomendations to great spots. Here is a collection of great restaurants for groups brainstored with some Hautnot readers and our friends at Delicious Israel Culinary Tours. If we forgot a great place make sure to leave a comment at the bottom!
