Hike Description

Hike Description

On Nov, 29-30, 2017, Melabev will be hiking in the lush Jerusalem hills near Latrun – an area rich in ancient and modern history with spectacular views.  This is the region where Yeshoshua Bin Nun stopped the sun from setting and where Judah Maccabee defeated the Greek army.  More recently, it is the site captured by the IDF in the Six-Day War, 50 years ago.

The hike will begin at Neve Shalom, then descend to the Ayalon Valley and culminate at the Memorial Site and Armored Corps Museum in Latrun – an extraordinary presentation of tanks and armored vehicles, as well as a tribute to our brave men and women.  The evening will end with a special guided tour of the museum followed by a delicious catered dinner.

Two hike options: (Both hikes go mainly along the Cross Israel Trail, which is relatively flat.)

  • Short Hike – 2 km (45 min. – 1 hour)
  • Longer Hike – 3.5 km (1-1.5 hours)
