  Solomon Schechter School of Westchester
sends its eighth grade students and its twelfth grade students for extended educational visits in Israel each year.  Neot Kedumim is a regular stop on the school's itinerary, as it was this year.  In addition to learning about life during the days of the Tanakh, the eighth grade also celebrated the Bat Mitzvah of a classmate while visiting Neot Kedumim. 

 
     

 

 


 


 Artwork  Exhibition
Every Friday between February 1 and March 1, Neot Kedumim was proud to offer to the public the art exhibit entitled “Tall Tales,” featuring the work of 14 artists. All of the exhibited artwork was based on themes of nature, focusing on nature, and more specifically, on trees. 

Since the dawn of time, trees have represented an important cultural element in the world of mankind. The wood has been used for shelter, the fruit for nourishment, the shade of the leaves, for comfort. Trees also played a central role in many biblical stories, as well as many of the homilies told by the Talmudic sages.

The unique setting of Neot Kedumim as a biblical nature reserve, with trees like those known in the time of the Bible and the Talmud, provided a perfect setting for these current artists and their visions of the tree in our modern lives. 

 

 

 


 

  “The Jews Are Coming” 
Neot Kedumim was transformed for six days into a television studio for six days, as a new satirical comedy, “The Jews Are Coming” was filmed on location at the reserve. The show, which will be broadcast on Israel’s Channel 1 stars several well-known Israeli stars, including Moni Moshonov, Yossi Marshak, Iddo Mosseri, Yael Sharoni and Yaniv Biton.
