I recently had the opportunity to join our Jerusalem participants on their weekly siyur (field trip). We spent the day in Zichron Yaacov; one of my favorite cities in Israel. First stop of the day was Ramat Hanadiv. Ramat Hanadiv is a beautiful botanical garden situated just outside the city of Zichron.
We walked around the gardens taking in the smells, colors, and enjoying the cool mountain breeze. After months of heat the fall season has finally arrived and welcomed with open arms.
From the gardens we drove to the center of Zichron for a tour of the Aliyah Museum. Next stop was a quick stroll around the midrachov (walking promenade) and lunch in one of the cute cafes that line the street.
Zichron is famous for Wine. It is home to three of the largest wineries in Israel and many other boutique wineries. It seems only fitting that we would visit the Tishbi Winery for a tour and tasting.
