    Shabbat in the Lavi Hotel – Shabbat schedule

    The Lavi Hotel is located at the hub of our kibbutz, which is a religious community where Shabbat is observed strictly.

    The hotel has a glatt kosher kitchen under the supervision of Rabbi Rosenblatt, the rabbi of the Lower Galilee regional council.

    After the experience gained from hosting groups for many years, we have developed a schedule and the services that contribute greatly to the success of the Shabbat events.

    Candle lighting by the bar

    Kabbalat Shabbat and evening service

    Kiddush and Shabbat dinner

    Our guests will find a bottle of water and cake waiting for them when they enter their room.hot drinks can be prepared on every floor of the hotel throughout the Shabbat. The "Children's World" playroom will be open on Shabbat afternoon with supervision – in winter on Shabbat evening as well. The indoor heated swimming pool is open on Friday after noon, offering both separate and family hours. The pool closes a half hour before Shabbat. Cooling and heating are controlled centrally.

    Our experience has taught us that the success of a Shabbat event depends on meticulous preparation.

    We are at your service if you have any questions or requests or if any problems should arise while making the preparations for your Shabbat.
