  • The Mission Continues

    As in the past so it remains today - we were and still are under the selfsame commitment to adhere to the directions of the Gedolei Yisrael, who stand guard against breaches of purity threatening our camp. When we were required to ask – we asked. When we were instructed to depart – we left. The moment we are summoned back to raise the flag, every other consideration is pushed to the side and we answer: We are ready!

  • Haifa – Nesher Park

    02/12/2009 15:18

    This location was already specified during the Mandate Period to be preserved as a Nature Reserve, and in the 50's was the site of planting of pine trees every Tu b’Shevat. The area was later neglected, and became nothing more than a dumpsite – and when the site was in danger of being entirely ruined, a rehabilitation project of Keren Kayemet l’Yisrael began, and took the area under its wing. The transformation was stunning and the attractions beckon. There is also a cable car running on steel cables which is also suitable for children.

    A Trip Through History - Chapter 2

    07/10/2009 09:00

    Geographically speaking, the hill that ascends from Ir David is an extension of Har haBayis in a southern direction, even though it is situated lower down and surrounded by valleys on all sides. Pottery shards uncovered during archaeological excavations in the area have been dated to the early Israelite period, and attest to the presence of a Jewish settlement there spanning the generations. It is evident that the area was populated from the times of the Avos (Patriarchs) – and was heavily fortified against the Canaanites who lived in the vicinity and ruled over most of it.

    When, on one late night, I stepped into the long tunnel that descends from the heights of the slopes of Ir David into the depths of the earth in the direction of the Gichon spring, how could I not sense that I was stepping into history? Who knows – maybe it had been Rabi Yishmael Kohen Gadol himself, one of the Ten Martyrs, who had been the last person to tread this path, the one stretching through this underground tunnel that led to the mikveh used some two thousand years ago, today known as the Shiloach springs?
