Our Staff

 

Moran Shtark – Founder and CEO. The ‘ Heart & Spirit of Shkedia’.

I do what I love and love what I do and I love making people smile….”

Moran personally supervises each and every activity and event. With a resume full of production of exclusive events of varying scopes and geographies, and a Major in Business Management and Communications, Moran’s treasure trove of experience is full of unique touring options and cool, extraordinary events in an unlimited number of combinations – just waiting to be matched to the right group…

 

Lior Knaani – Director of Groups – The Man, The Hat and The Backpack…

Educator, thinker, mountain climber. The heartbeat of the land pulses through his veins.

His grandparents were pioneers in the rural Upper Galillee and fought for their lives and the establishment of the State of Israel. Lior is a fluent English speaking, and a certified tour guide with many years of guiding experience. Lior led both individuals and groups – adults, couples, pilgrims and more. Walking with Lior through Israel and getting to know it through his eyes is an emotional, touching experience.

Lior’s experience has taught him –

“There are many ways to guide or tell a story. Each group has its own story. To first time visitors The Wailing Wall will never be the same Wailing Wall that it is to retired IDF fighters who took part in its liberation. This is the beauty of it…”

 

Guy Har- nir – Director of External Relations – Shkedia’s liason with the Diaspora.

“Things you see from afar/a distance – you do not see up close”.

If you are looking for an authentic ‘Sabre’ (though polite and considerate – yes, he is an exception to the rule!) who understands where you are coming from through personal experience (he lived in the U.S. for many years), Guy is The Man for you. Having worked for the Jewish Agency Missions department for years, and being a certified tour guide, you can rest assure that your guests and family will receive VIP treatment all around!
