Food Allergy Cards in Hebrew

Food allergy cards in Hebrew are available for residents and tourists! Food Allergy Concierge takes your special dietary needs as seriously as you do and our food allergy cards will help keep you safe. This is not simply a translation service! Food Allergy Concierge is the only company that combines our medical expertise, your unique food allergies and reactions, AND our knowledge of Israeli cuisine and culture!!

Traveling in Israel with food allergies can be stressful.

Israel’s population has one of the lowest rates of food allergies, which sounds great - but it translates to less awareness. Therefore, having a simply translated card doesn’t cut it with an Israeli eating establishment. When you are dining in a hotel, restaurant, or at an event, you will find the service staff’s lack of food allergy knowledge worrisome. And in Israeli culture, people may pretend to know more than they actually do. It is unfortunate, but common, for an establishment to assure that there are no nuts in a dessert when in fact-there are. For someone with a life-threatening allergy, this is dangerous.

If your food allergy includes sesame, legumes or nuts, it is especially necessary to be prepared with a food allergy card. Baked goods made in commercial bakeries pose a high risk for allergy contamination, so we recommend purchasing custom allergy-free baked goods always!

For example, not only is sesame found in many cakes, cookies, and breads, it can also be in dishes you may not suspect. In fact, it is common to use sesame in chicken, vegetables, cookies, and candy like halva. Plus, the ever present tehini sauce is made with sesame!! Dining out becomes much safer after you present the Food Allergy Concierge card to the dining staff. Make sure they take you and the card seriously!!

The Food Allergy Concierge laminated card process begins with a comprehensive intake and assessment by a health professional who is trained in food allergies. This information will enable your customized card to contain vital data that is unique to your situation.

Next, we create the card, in English, for your approval. The final step is to translate the card into Hebrew & laminate it. We then send the card directly to you.

Our food allergy cards contain:

  1.  Customized Allergy Information

  2.  Information about Israeli food products that relate to your allergies

  3. Instructions on how to treat your allergic reactions

  4. Emergency phone numbers and contacts

What Our Clients Say

Meticulous in their preparations

During our recent visit to Israel, we really struggled to find food for our son who has anaphylactic level allergies to egg and sesame. We approached both restaurants and hotels and were told they were unable or unwilling to take responsibility for preparing his food.

 After learning about Dr. Eliana on-line, we contacted her in the hopes that she could provide a ‘normal’ restaurant experience for our family.

 Both she and Shani were meticulous in their preparations with the restaurants to ensure that our son had a wonderful and safe experience.

 We truly appreciate their efforts to take care of our son, and to provide us with a lovely vacation experience.

Comfortable, calm, and at ease

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing gift you have given us over this Pesach- the gift of having you with us!!!!

We have NEVER felt more comfortable, calm, and at ease than we did these past 10 days. Your warmth, professionalism, kindness, and care shown through in all that you did.

My children are so grateful that they were able to be with you this Pesach. You made sure that they were so well looked after and they felt so at ease and comfortable with you! You were so amazing and approachable to them! And they LOVED all the food you so amazingly prepared (supervised allergy-free food preparation, managed menus) for them!

It’s very difficult for us to trust people when it comes to our kids and allergies. You magically were able to take away ALL of our anxieties, and nervousness (and we don’t give that away so easily!!)

We can never fully thank you enough. We truly feel that you instantly became part of our family and we look forward to G-d willing being able to be with you and plan amazing trips with you many many many more times!!!!
