Neot Kedumim: Bringing the Biblical Landscape to Life
Neot Kedumim is a biblical nature reserve that allows visitors to experience the landscape and nature of the Bible. While the natural beauty of the reserve is certainly impressive, the significance is much greater than surface level.
The 624 acre reserve helps visitors further understand the biblical text in its original context by bringing the Bible to life. Guests are invited to engage in activities such as working an ancient style wine press and building a Sukkot. Picture what life was like for Ruth as you glean barley from the threshing fields. Listen to the bleating of lambs and imagine what David’s youth was like as you experience sheep herding. Smell the oil from the olives as it goes through an ancient style olive press and contemplate the everyday lives of the ancient Israelites. All these experiences will bring the Bible to life in a way that reading words on a page simply cannot.
Conveniently located between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, Neot Kedumim is one of Israel’s best kept secrets. Whether joining a guided tour or exploring on one’s own, the reserve is an enjoyable experience for the whole family.
