Tuesday, June 4, 2019: Guided Tour of Carmel Mountains Area
This year we will visit the beautiful area surrounding the Carmel mountains. The guided tour will depart from the Systor conference site at 2:00 pm and return at around 8:30 pm.
We will begin our tour at the "Deir-Al- Mukhraqa" Carmelite monastery, situated 497 meters above sea level. The Order was established on the Carmel mountain range at the time of the Crusaders; it adopted the image of Elijah, the lone prophet who fought zealously against the heretics of his time.
From there we will drive through the abundant forests of Mount Carmel to the lovely town of Zichron Yaakov, where we will enjoy an Israeli wine tasting session at the Carmel Winery. The winery was founded in 1882 through the generosity of Baron Edmund de Rothschild. Named for his father, Yaakov, it is among the earliest established towns in Israel.
For a perfect end to this day, we will dine at one of the well-known restaurants in Zichron Yaakov.
