hike in luzit caves

The shfeila region is home to many caves and tunnels, since the limestone is this area is soft and easy to excavate.

Among these caves are “bell caves” which are former quarries. The caves are a network of underground connected dome shapes caverns with a hole in the center at the surface level. They were dug during the Roman, Byzantine, and early Arab periods. (3rd-10th century CE). Note the shape of the structurally sound dome and the chisel markings on the walls.

At times, adventure companies come here offering rappelling into the caves. Since there are many “holes” in the ceiling you must be VERY careful when you are up on top.

Large beautiful bell caves can also be found in the Bet Guvrin National Park, but the caves near Moshav Luzit are open to the public 24/7...

weekly hike nachal prat

Amidst the yellow-brown of Judea Desert there is a flowing stream of water that disrupts with its blue, turquoise and green the monotony of the desert. This is Nahal Prat, a perennial stream and a touristic attraction. It is the ultimate trail that Nature can offer, an opportunity to meet with an ancient monastery, some secluded monks, and their hewed hermitage on its cliffs. When considering what life in such a paradise can offer one can understand why to leave everything in favor of a hermitage and different way to approach life: the Prat Stream can really bring peace onto every one.

 

How to Hike There

The trail is suitable for the entire family during any season of the year. Principally it is not a circular one, but a segment of it may be completed by one car...

idea for bar mizva in jerusallem

bar mizva in jerusalem:

B’nai Mitzvah festivities typically include a seudat mitzvah a celebratory meal with family, friends, and members of the community. Others may celebrate in different ways such as taking the bar mitzvah on a special trip or organizing some special event in the celebrant’s honor. In many communities, the celebrant is given a certificate. The main idea according to the Orthodox view is that this boy or girl is so happy that they are now commanded to do mitzvah and now they will earn reward in the next world for their efforts, that they throw a party and have a festive meal.

Bar and Bat Mitzvah parties in America are often lavish affairs held at hotels and country clubs with hundreds of guests.[5][6][7] The trend has been mocked, most notably in the movie Keeping...
