Israel's rich history attracts millions of tourists each year, longing for a sense of what it was like in the Holyland during biblical times. Kfar Kedem (literally The Ancient Village) does exactly that, offering hands-on experiences that transport guests to life on a Jewish village in the Galilee two thousand years ago. Visitors can ride donkeys across the rolling hills that Abraham rode. Take in the scents that Jacob smelled tending Laban's flocks. Hear the words of the prophets as they thresh grain, press oil from fresh olives and wine from fresh grapes while dressed like times of old.

At Kfar Kedem the ancient Galilee comes to life. Located at Hoshaya, a community of Orthodox Jewish families has created a holistic experience, involving the actual production of household staples such as milk, wool, and bread from scratch. The experience is enriched with historical and spiritual context provided by professional guides. The activities are open to all ages and can be topped off with a rustic meal at the village's Sheppard's tent restaurant.  Kfar Kedem is located in the lower Galilee, between Tiberius and Haifa, on one of the main roads of the Galilee, paved over a route that has served this area for thousands of years.
