Guy Marom

Co-Founder & C.O.O

Guy was born and raised in Koranit, Israel, in the Lower Galilee. The roots of his appreciation for nature and love of Israel stem from his grandparents’ history. After escaping the Holocaust, Guys ancestors settled in Israel and took to the work of building the land of Israel with their very own hands.
After his three-year army service Guy spent eight months traveling across New Zealand and the Far East. His travels around the world gave him a fresh perspective on Israel and an understanding of what makes his homeland so unique – a perspective he felt he must share with others. It also allowed him to see the world in a whole new way - up close and personal - and gave him the desire seek to bring travelers throughout the world and provide them the same opportunity.

Deb Lust Zaluda

Co-Founder & US Director

Deb is a lifelong Chicagoan, growing up, marrying, and raising her own family there. Following a long and successful career as a lawyer, Deb turned her vocational efforts to her deepest passions: Israel, travel and philanthropy. She has had leadership roles in numerous Israel-centric charities and continues in that vein, including efforts to help grow the population (getting young people to stay or move back from the center and getting others to move from the center of Israel to the Galilee) and to introduce further-afield US communities to Israel’s great successes in the environment and community building. Her love for Israel led her to start her own Israel travel business back in 2010. She eventually combined that business with Puzzle Israel. In addition to working to share her passion for Israel with others by showing them Israel “Puzzle” style, she now focuses much of her efforts on Israel travel that combines both philanthropy and experiential travel. And now, through Puzzle International, Deb can also share her zest for experiential and philanthropic travel around the world with others as well!
