Between Israel’s establishment in 1948 and the June 1967 war, daily attacks from this mountain range embittered the lives of the Galilee residents.

We will then start the drive South and stop at the Sachne natural springs for a dip in the cold waters and a refreshing and invigoration experience! After this refreshing stop we will continue to Jerusalem. Upon arrival we will stop at Mt. Scopus, the original pilgrimage site and recite the traditional She’HeCheyanu with some Kiddush wine and Challah bread. We will arrive to the hotel to unpack and relax before having dinner.
