Archaeology and History
A biblical garden that covers 2 acres of vineyards, olive groves, wheat fields and goat paths, terraces cultivated with herbs and spices and more.
It was inaugurated in 2000 in cooperation with the Beit Shalom Association in Switzerland and the Israel Antiquities Authority, which found authentic archeological findings scattered throughout the area. Visitors are invited to enjoy biblical experiences, to learn and to experience the life and culture of our forefathers, in combination with authentic archaeological findings and reconstructions from the biblical period, the Second Temple, the Mishnah and the Talmud.
The Biblical Garden offers a glimpse into the world of one of the sons of the old Jewish village, the ingredients of the meal on his table, the bread he made, the olive growing for making oil, and grapes for making wine, his clothes he made out of the sheeps' wool he raised in his yard, and for drinking, the rainwater he collected and stored in the waterhole, and finally the produce that he processed in local shops, like the olive press.
