Joe Alon Center

Museums And Culture

A center for studies of Israel's geography and the southern Shfela (plain) and northern Negev regions. A unique combination of a visitor center and a museum.

The center, located at the Lahav Forest, near kibbutz Lahav, was established in 1980 by the Joe Alon Commemoration Society with assistance of the JNF, governmental bodies and private donors.

The Joe Alon Center is located in the northern Negev, at the highest point of the southern Shfela, about 500 meters above sea level and in the middle of an area full of archaeological remnants, nature and landscape, Bedouin encampment and modern forms of settlements.

This region, which was considered a frontier until the Six Day War, is unique as it forms a sort of a border between the sown land and the desert, the mountains and the coastal plain, the desert and the Mediterranean flora and between the Bedouin encampments to the Fellah villages of southern Mount Hebron.
