 The inauguration ceremony for the scenic lookout in memory of prison officer cadet Topaz Even-Hen Klein, who died in the great Mount Carmel fire, took place on Friday afternoon amid the magnificent landscapes of Adamit Park in northern Israel. The ceremony was attended by Police Chief Yohanan Danino, Prison Service Commissioner Aharon Franco, former Police Chief Assaf Hefetz, former IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi and some 150 family members, friends and KKL-JNF representatives. 

The moving ceremony took place in one of Western Galilee’s most beautiful northernmost locations: Adamit Park. 

“On the way here, the further north you go, the more beautiful the Israeli landscape becomes, the more your heart goes out to nature and the more you forget your trivial everyday preoccupations and the turbulent reality we live in,” declared Police Chief Yohanan Danino at the start of his speech. 

Ramat Adamit (“Adamit Heights”), which forms part of the Rosh HaNikra Ridge in the western part of Upper Galilee, is situated at an elevation of around 400 meters above sea level and offers a fine view of the hilly Galilean landscape and Haifa Bay. 

The scenic lookout, which was donated by the Hamburger family through the Harel Group’s Century Foundation, is situated at the western side of the park, on the way to the Arch Cave (Me‘arat Keshet). On a clear day there is an excellent view of Mount Carmel, where Topaz Even-Hen Klein met her death.
