The Parks Project
There is so much more to Israel than the Wailing Wall and the Temple Mount!!!
Israeli parks and nature reserves are amazingly varied and rich from magnificent desert views to running streams, hidden pools, rich flora and fauna and archaeology.
Once the authority opened the parks after the corona lockdown, I vowed to see them all.
Bitronot Ruhama is a unique nature reserve in Israel’s Negev, featuring spring wildflowers, desert trees, rolling hills among deep crevasses. It is located by Kibbutz Ruhama with its own interesting history and tourist attractions.
The Good Samaritan Museum in the Judean Desert provides a platform for interreligious reconciliation between Christians, Jews and Samaritans. The place served as an inn and way station for travelers, pilgrims and armies since ancient times. The museum features precious Byzantian mosaics from the three religions.
Banias Nature Reserve, hosting a major source of the Jordan River, is an incredible historical and ecological site in the Northern Golan. Rich in vegetation and natural beauty, it served historically as a worship site for the Greek god Pan and the nymphs.
In preparation: Hamasrek, Beit She’an, HaHula, Ein Gedi, Habonim, Qasr al Yahud, and more.
