“We had a really good experience working with Ellen in planning our son’s Bar Mitzvah in Costa Rica. She had lots of great suggestions on how to plan our trip, and was incredibly responsive to our needs — even when we were actually on our trip and sending her questions via e-mail.

Costa Rica is a really beautiful place, with so much to see and do. We also had a great experience with the congregation at B’nei Israel. We felt truly welcomed and embraced — as if we were family.”
Sincerely, Jonathan
