Hike Details

Melabev’s Annual Rachel Wasserman Hike for Alzheimer’s Care
Phase III of our “Sea to Sea” Hike

The final stretch from the Mediterranean to the Sea of Galilee 


This year, November 13 – 14 (Wed. & Thurs), we will be completing Phase III, the final stretch of our ‘Sea to Sea’ hike by reaching the beautiful Sea of Galilee (Kinneret.) We will hike for 2 fun-filled days experiencing beautiful vistas and learning from our excellent guides the historical significance of the area. The challenging hike will be in all of Nahal Amud – beginning where we finished our Phase II hike last year (next to Meron.) Nahal Amud Eliyon on the first day and completing the hike on day 2. The easier hike will begin where we started last year, going in the opposite direction – with a probable visit to the grave of Yonatha Ben Uziel, recognized as Hillel’s (of Hillel and Shamai fame) best student. The second day is a short hike near the northern Kinneret where we will meet up with the other group and hike the last few kilometers from Moshav Livnim to the Kinneret.

A special and fun event awaits us when we reach the Kineret. Can’t give away any secrets!! Come and see for yourself.

Our hike for next year has already been planned and will be revealed at the Kinneret.
