Tiyul: Emek Ha’Ela


₪250.00 – ₪316.00

Emek Ha’Ela

Guide Dani Margolis

Tuesday 17 January 2023

We start the day with a visit to the new museum at Sha’ar Hagai dedicated to the brave young Palmach volunteers and regular civilians who persevered to bring supplies to Jerusalem during the War of Independence. At this time Arab forces blocked the then narrow road and fired on them, blocking their advance to the city with food and medicine needed for the isolated residents. The experience is interactive with creative, state of the art exhibits.

We will then drive to Tel Azeka in Emek Ha’Ela to discuss the site and some of the behind the scene ideas around the story of David and Goliath which took place there.

Depending on the weather, we will either enjoy a picnic lunch at Park Canada or eat at the mall in Beit Shemesh.

To finish our day, we metaphorically return to the War of Independence and visit the site of Latrun. 

Today it is the memorial to the armored corps of the IDF. Previously it was a strategic location built by the British and overtaken by the Jordanian forces, only to be conquered in the Six-Day War of 1967.
