Over the past year, we have seen more than our share of change in the Middle East and in the world.
The holiday of Passover is all about change. This is the time that we commemorate the Israelites change from a small, extended family, to a great nation. They changed from being an enslaved people, living under the yoke of Pharoah, to a free nation serving only the true God.
Passover is called (among other things) in Hebrew “The Holiday of Spring” – and the spring is also very much associated with change and renewal.
At Neot Kedumim, we are privileged to experience these annual changes as they happen in nature. We feel the weather grow warmer, we feel the trees and plants begin to bloom, and we witness the renewal of the circle of life after the cold, blessedly wet winter that Israel had this year.
Whether you have visited the reserve a dozen times, or have not (yet) had the opportunity to come at all, I can guarantee that there will always be new experiences at your fingertips at Neot Kedumim. You may choose to take part in a hands-on activity, visit the ancient agricultural installations, or simply enjoy a walk through the natural beauty of the same landscape our ancestors knew thousands of years ago. Whatever you do, you are in for a wonderful treat unlike anything you will find anywhere else in the world.
Wishing you all a wonderful, happy and healthy Pesach,
