Biblical experiences for children and adults at Kfar Kedem

In Kfar Kedem, which is attached to Moshav Hoshaya close to Tzipori, children and adults can transport themselves to Biblical and Mishnaic times through hands-on experiences while dressed in authentic period clothing.  

Different activities are offered for all ages and all 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 (well, 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 come in the form of packages that last from 1½ to 2 to 2½ hours from 152 to 319 NIS per person, including a meal. For less than 10 people there is a charge of 470 NIS for a guide, but individuals can often be added to preexisting groups. There are also individual activities, such as wheat to bread, wine press and olive press for 86 NIS (grapes not included), and the donkey trail for 92 NIS, but these are not encouraged. It is expected that parents will accompany their children and pay for themselves and their children. Check on current prices via their website and directly by phone. Activities shoudl be booked in advance. Their phone number is 04 656-5511, email and this is their website. Their website contains short movies.
