This is a lovely fortress, located in the Western Galilee. The view from the top of the fortress is absolutely beautiful and on a clear day you can see the seashore from Mt. Carmel in Haifa to the Lebanese border.

Peki'in Old Synagogue

Reviewed By Giora_I_L - Haifa, Israel

Jewish presence survived in Israel over the centuries in few places. One of them is Peki'in and the Zenati family. A visit to the village located in the high Mountains of the Galilee is always great. There are several points of interest such as the cave of Rabi Shimon Bar Yochai and the central village well, but the highlight is the Synagogue that still operates from time to time. We were lucky to taste mulberries from the tree in the small yard. If you understand Hebrew you can attend the very interesting show of the last of Zenati family member (Margalit) in Peki'in.

Kids Airport

Reviewed By Sfrantz - Jerusalem, Israel

The Kids Airport at My Baby is a massive store for kids and teens as well as a place for kids to play, they have three floors in this huge box store. One floor includes games and arcade for kids. The next floor has games, bikes and clothes, they have an ample selection of many major brands such as Hot Wheels, Lego, Fischer Price, and blocks and other things for all ages. It's not exhaustive but pretty great.
On the bottom floor they have stuff for sports including boogie boards and camping and ice coolers for being outside.
This is a great place for kids and for shopping.

Galileat

Are you travelling in Israel and looking for something off the beaten track? Galileat brings you different types of activities that the whole family will love.Makluba, Hubeza, Sinya…Maybe you've heard the names but never realized that it's authentic Galilean food. Galileat gives you an authentic experience that will make your trip to Israel an unforgettable one. We will show you Israel through the eyes, and palate, of a local. Our culinary adventures allow the participant a hands-on, true to life cultural immersion. It is a unique experience, unlike anything else you've ever done in Israel. You complete one of our cooking workshops having learnt how to cook something that you might, or might not have heard about , having eaten what you prepare with your host, and will understand a little better how people live in the rural Galilee. Oh, and let's not forget…it's a whole lot of fun!!!We have Druze, Moslem and Christian hosts, all of whom exemplify the middle-eastern custom of hachnasat orchim; warmly welcoming guests into their homes. The day starts (after tea and coffee, of course) with approximately 3 hours of hands-on preparation of traditional dishes. In the winter and spring, it is many wild greens, picked fresh from the fields. Late spring and summer, frikki (smoked green wheat) is on the menu. The menu changes seasonally, in keeping with the cycle of life in the Galilee. Once we have finished preparing the delicacies, we all sit and enjoy our feast. Culinary tourism is not just about good eating. That you can do at home. It's about exploring foreign cultures through taste, smell and experience.

This experience was absolutely amazing, wonderful, unique and unforgettable! Being able to cook with Roudena's family and then also being able to spend time with them was so special!! Paul was so amazing and enabled us to communicate with Roudena and her family despite speaking different languages as well as explaining to us the different cooking techniques we were using and giving us his expertise!! This was absolutely amazing and a must for anyone wanting an authentic experience that is not something you would normally do! Thank you so much Paul for making this possible!

The Grottos at Rosh HaNiqra

Reviewed By AUROBINDO S - ALPHARETTA

You spend 15 USD a person to ride down the cable car to the grottos. It’s a 30 second ride. All you’re going to see in the grottos, you can be done in about 15 minutes.
The grottos are lovely and we got splashed! And if you’re up here already why not go! But remember it’s quite expensive even by Israel standards so I would not make a special trip just for this.

Ghetto Fighters Museum (Lohamei HaGetaot Museum)

Reviewed By Adiva S - Rockville, Maryland

I was very impressed by this museum -- the manner and order of the presentations and of the information was outstanding. Oral history videos added to the experience.
The children's museum was exceptional in presenting a child's experience of the holocaust and emphasizing the traits and coping skills that helped children through this ordeal.

Baram National Park

The ancient Synagogue in Kfar Bar’am is a magnificent structure, built of large, beautiful ashlar. The remains of the Maronite village of Biram is also located in the park. You can find the Bar’am Forest Reserve near the Synagogue – an exceptional natural forest with impressively tall oak trees. The park also offers a lawn with picnic tables. The site is accessible for people in wheelchairs. Bar mitzvahs can be held here – for details, contact the site manager.

Reviewed By Ann C - Nashville, Tennessee

The National Park exhibits two old Synagogues that are very close in proximity to each other. The larger one is still well preserved, the smaller is more of a foundation.
Immediately next to the Synagogues (access from the same parking area) is a Maronite church and bell tower that is still in use (the church is built on the site of an older church) and there are ruins of a village right next to the church. These are not mentioned in the National Park brochure (because they are not considered part of the National Park) however are well worth taking the time to explore. I believe the name of this area is Kafr Bir'im or Kafar Berem. The last inhabitants of this city were Christians.
