Posted by Gil Travel on July 30, 2018

If you are looking for picturesque alleys, cute cafés, and wonderful scenery, Rosh Pina is the perfect place for you. Located in the Upper Galilee, this charming small town neighbours Safed, and with Hazor, they make a three-city attraction famous for their rich history, spectacular scenery, light industry (things like consumer electronics or the clothing industry. It's less capital-dependent and more manufacturing oriented), and tourism. Rosh Pina was founded in 1882 by 30 families who emigrated from Romania, and it was the first settlement in Israel under the Baron Edmond James de Rothschild’s patronage. Rothschild built a synagogue first, followed by houses and schools, and this is what we know today as the old, lovely neighbourhood of Rosh Pina and a town of some 3000 residents.

Must-Visit Kibbutzim in Israel

Posted by Gil Travel on June 4, 2018

Kibbutzim are pioneering establishments, and the kibbutz movement is one of the most iconic in modern Israel’s history. Kibbutz is the Hebrew word for gathering, a notion that is extremely important to Israelis. The origin of kibbutzim is mostly agricultural. Many young immigrants from Eastern Europe that came from the early 1900’s toiled to cultivate the swamp land and make it habitable. As many came with socialist beliefs, they created entire communes. These were organized around agriculture and the idea that all property, including the fruit of their work, should belong to the community as a whole. That is why the results of their labor were equally shared by all members. From the 1970s, many kibbutzim were privatised. Today, kibbutzim export agricultural goods, cut diamonds, and drip irrigation equipment. Some offer tours, and others provide an authentic kibbutz experience with their living and work programmes.
