A magical, lantern-lit nighttime experience in the fresh Galilee air.

We will get to know sages from the times of the Bible and the Mishna and get to know ourselves a little better. We will visit a marvelous observation point, one of the most beautiful in Israel. This tour will include musicians, lanterns, bonfires and baking focaccias.
During the month of Elul, Keren Kayemet LeIsrael–The Jewish National Fund will organize a variety of selichot tours all around Israel, under strict compliance with the Ministry of Health's guidelines during the coronavirus crisis.
Against the backdrop of unrest in Israeli society in the shadow of the coronavirus crisis, the main theme of this year's selichot tours will be mutual responsibility and they will include discussion circles on various different subjects. These tours will be led by KKL–JNF guides and they will include a variety of attractions, including Musicians, actors, meetings with gabbaim from synagogues and yeshivas, lighting bonfires and baking focaccias, lanterns and more, each tour with its own unique extras.
Daniel Attar, Chairman of KKL–JNF: "Every year, selichot tours are an emotional event in its importance and its message. This time however, in the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic that strikes the world and the State of Israel, selichot tours have an additional meaning. We invite the general public to participate in KKL–JNF's selichot tours, to come together and to enjoy the various additional attractions in these tours".
This tour will take place on Thursdays, 17.9 and 24.9, starting at 17:00.
Due to the restrictions imposed by coronavirus pandemic, these events may only take place in capsules of 20 people.
