Biblical experiences at Kfar Kedem

At Kfar Kedem in Moshav Hoshaya children and adults can transport themselves to Biblical and Mishnaic times via hands-on experiences while dressed in period clothing.  

     Do you find my website interesting and helpful?

Then you are sure to love my two new books "In and Around Jerusalem for Everyone - The Best Walks, Hikes and Outdoor Pools" and "The Struggle for Utopia - A History of Jewish, Christian and Islamic Messianism". Both books are available on Amazon and in Jerusalem bookstores. Click on each of the titles for information, reviews and purchase information.

Different activities are offered for all ages and seasons, including a donkey ride through the Galilee hills, milking goats and making cheese, threshing wheat and grinding it into flour to make pita, making wine (more accurately grape juice) when grapes are in season, making oil from olives in the autumn, and shearing sheep and spinning wool. You can also recline on cushions in the Nomad’s Tent and drink strong coffee, herbal teas and a pre-ordered meal.


Activities are in the form of packages that last from 1½ to 2½ hours, and may include a meal. For less than 10 people there is a charge for a guide, although individuals can often be added to existing groups. There are also activities separate from the packages such as wheat to bread, wine press, olive press, and the donkey trail, but these are not encouraged. Parents are expected to accompany their children and pay for themselves and their children. Check on current prices via their website or directly by phone. Visits need to be scheduled in advance. Their phone number is 04 656-5511, email and this is their website. Their website contains short movies.
