Walk into the past, between pine trees. Walk down the hill, throw those ancient garden, and smell the fresh trees and bushes. Recommended for visit at the autumn, winter and spring. Not far away from well designed city Modi'in.

Of all the times I've been to Israel, I had never been to Neot Kedumim. I went with a group of educators from around the world and was truly impressed. Firstly, our guide Michal was not only an excellent and informed educator but incredibly passionate about telling the story of Israel through the land. This place is such a good... More

Our group stopped here for a half day and we loved it! An unusual tour in the Jerusalem area - very focused on the terrain and flora of the area. Our tour included an interactive stop of crushing hyssop leaves with mortar and pestal (sounds weird but was fun) and we were serenaded by a group of young Jewish students... More

I've been to Israel 8 times before and I've never heard of this place. So I was skeptical when it was recommended to me for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. But it was the best possible choice. The facility was rustic but authentic and fun. The Sukkah where the Bat Mitzvah was held was a unique special place. The tour after... More

Biblical garden and nature reserve. Beautiful location, great and informatve tous. Many fun activities for children (especially during holidays). Visited today on the eve of Chanuka and saw olive oil being pressed and a potter making and explaining the origin of clay lights. Meaty Kosher meals available if ordered in advance. A lovely day out near Modi'in.

We've been here before- a generation ago with our children, and now with their children. The place us OK- I've never been too excited about it. It is a rustic location with basic amenities- snack bar and facilities. The site is large and difficult to cover it all on foot. The posted explanations are not detailed enough and one needs...

Went during Sukkot and there was a very interesting array of different examples of Sukkot. It was especially great for kids as there were live animals (donkey, camel, sheep), a gymboree, art projects, and a musical performance. There were nice views of the surrounding countryside, and I learned several things and thought it was overall nicely put together.

Our group was not able to explore the place since we arrived when it was already dark after touring other places in Jerusalem. However, we were served a good Passover dinner, with someone explaining how Passover dinner was traditionally observed. Some members of our group were also given some costumes to wear to have a more authentic experience

This is a lovely natural reserve, apx. a 20-30 minute drive west of Jerusalem. It consists of trees and animals that were abundant in Israel during Biblical times. There are several trails available to explore and a nice lake with some ducks swimming in it. Great for kids.
