Do you provide teaching materials?

 

Yes.  Included with all of our Biblical harps are a harp instruction manual.

 

The secret of playing our harps ‘well’, however, is to keep in mind that it is a prayer instrument.  You will learn to play it best by being free with it and letting the Ruach HaKodesh be your true teacher…Like King David did long ago!  The sweetest songs come from a pure heart.

 

Playing with the Hebrew letters is also very easy.  If you request them carved into your harp, then you have them right there as you are playing.  You just need to play the corresponding notes that go with the letters.

 

We have people from age 4 till 96 who have bought our harps, and all (including the children) have played them beautifully and with joy.  So I know you will, too!

We have many professional harp players who buy our harps and love them.  

 

So the harps are both professional and yet easy to play.  The best of all worlds...

Driving Directions:

 

From Jerusalem:

 

Take Sde Hertzel past the military cemetery and going towards Ein Kerem.  Go through the village of Ein Kerem all the way to the bottom of the hill.  Here you will come to a circle.

 

At the circle, go towards 395 Mevesseret Zion.  Follow this road for 5 minutes.  You will come to another circle.  As you go around the circle, follow the sign for the 395 in the direction of Bet Shemesh.  The road sign will say Kibbutz Tzuba (Zova) and Eitanim Hospital, and after 1 minute you will see another road sign with Ramat Raziel.   

 

After another 5 minutes, you will see the entrance to the moshav of Ramat Raziel on your left.  Just before the entrance to the moshav, you will see a small road on the right ~ turn right here!    

 

Follow this side road almost to the end.  Most of the buildings you will pass are former chicken coops, so you will not see much until you come to our place. 

 

When you get to the harp shop, you will see a white building with a car or two parked in front, and on the wall there is a small sign that says House of Harrari.  The entrance has a wooden arch with bougainvillea and jasmine flowers around it and there is a big red rose bush right next to it.  

 

If there is any problem or you get lost call us at (02) 570 9075.

 

From Tel Aviv:

 

From the Tel Aviv highway #1, get off the highway at Bet Shemesh.  Go straight towards Beit Shemesh, but after about 2 – 3 minutes look for Moshav Eshtaol.  Directly across from Moshav Eshtaol, you will see a road on your left that says 395, Ramat Raziel.  Turn left here.

 

Go up the mountain road (it is very beautiful!) and follow the signs towards Jerusalem.  You will come to a circle.  Even though there is a sign that says Ramat Raziel to the right, DON’T turn here.  Go straight through the circle another 500 meters or so.

 

You will see a white gate into the moshav on your right.  Directly across from the white gate is a small road on the left.  Turn left here and then turn immediately right where it splits.  As you drive along this road, you will see some empty buildings.  We are about three to four buildings down on the left.

 

All the others are empty, but our harp shop is filled with flowers, pomegranate trees and a big rose bush by the wooden entrance gate.  There is a small sign that says harp shop, though it might be hidden now by the foliage!

 

There will be a few cars.  Park here and come on in...
