About the tour

Rosh HaShana - also known as the Jewish New Year's Day - is celebrated throughout Israel this week. We'll visit the Carmel Market in Tel Aviv, the city's oldest market, now marking its centennial year. Join me to see the sights and hear the sounds of this colourful market, while we talk about how Jews around the world prepare for the end of one year and the beginning of another.

Meet Tomer


Tomer has been guiding tours in the city since 2008. What started out of fascination about his family's history - the Chelouche family is one of the founding families of Tel Aviv - has seen him meet new people and show the city that has transformed over the course of several generations. On Tomer's tours, you'll get to discover fascinating stories about its history, culture, and much more, especially since Tomer's ancestors participated in the establishment of the first Jewish neighborhood built outside the walls of ancient Jaffa, and the modern city of Tel Aviv.

I wish I could rate this because I enjoy Tomer's tours so much. However, it conflicted with a tour in Jerusalem and so I had to make a decision as to which one I would attend. Would be a good idea if conflict was avoided in the future.

Great guide. I'm sure content would have been wonderful but I left after a few minutes because of schedule conflict with Itamar and I couldn't watch both.

The information and the visuals at the Carmel market were wonderful, and Tomer’s sense of humor keeps it all light and fun.
