Hike Description

This year, we will be hiking along trails close to home – for those who live in Jerusalem (physically or spiritually.)

On this, the 70th year if Israel’s establishment, our tour will begin at the Mt. Herzl Military Cemetery. We will hear moving stories of the leaders of our nation and of the soldiers who fell, enabling us to reach these milestones.

Israel’s Military Cemetery is named after Benyamin Ze’ev (Theodore) Herzl, visionary of the Jewish State. It stretches along the northern slopes of Mt. Herzl and on its western side sits the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial. Together, these sites give expression to the major events that led to the establishment of the State of Israel just half a century after Herzl himself first envisioned it.

From there, we will board the bus to one of two spots to begin our hike. The hikers who prefer a challenge will begin their hike at the Kennedy Memorial located in the beautiful Aminadav Forest. The hikers preferring a less challenging route will begin on the Cross Israel Trail – Ein Lavan at Kiryat Menachem. Both groups will meet at the renewed Lavan Springs where we will be able to dip our tired feet into the refreshing water pools. We will have our celebrated barbeque dinner before returning by bus to the Mt. Herzl parking area.
