Neot Kedumim, the Biblical Landscape Reserve in Israel, has recently completed a ceremonial tree planting center of the JNF-USA, the first of its kind in Israel. The Planting Center is located on one of Neot Kedumim's hilltops, with a vineyard and tall preserved stone watchtower with breathtaking views of the Samarian Hills on one side, and the skyline of Tel Aviv and the Coastal Plain on the other. In addition to the valuable tour and the experience of the visit, the site offers its visitors to be a part of the ancient tradition of planting a tree in the Land of Israel.
The Hertz Tree Planting Center was planned, designed and built over the course of the last month, taking into careful consideration elements of design, construction, development. Emphasis was also placed upon environmental conservation, using recycled artistic components and materials which are appropriate to the planting site and the Nature Reserve.
The planting center is suited to tourists traveling as part of a group, organized mission or individually, including overseas youth. The center is handicap accessible.
Neot-Kedumim is the only Biblical Landscape Reserve in the world that allows visitors to experience the Land of the Bible as it was during the time of the Bible. Situated halfway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv and only 10 minutes from Ben Gurion International Airport, Neot Kedumim offers over 620 acres of picturesque biblical landscape with plants and trees, water and agricultural installations as they were over 2,000 years ago. Guided tours and workshops (sheep-herding workshops, biblical cooking workshops) available, as well as special educational programs for all ages.
