Picking Olives, Old Style

An archeological tour, baking pita bread, a kosher sukka and a winning recipe for pickled olives – all these were among the attractions on offer at the olive harvest get-together held by KKL-JNF at the Kabri Forest and Archeological Center in northern Israel.
An additional olive picking event took place in Ben Shemen Forest. At both events children and adults helped to harvest the olives and took part in an enjoyable range of activities in the woodland, under the guidance of KKL-JNF instructors.  Participants had the opportunity to choose from a variety of tours and activity stations, including olive pressing, games, and arts and crafts.

While all these activities were underway, visitors could also participate in two separate tours: a heritage tour outside the archeological garden, led by Tzafrir Bar-Shira; and an archeological tour inside the site, with oil presses as its subject and Dr. Rafi Frankel as guide.



The Radio Kol Rega radio station reported on the activities at Kabri as part of a special Sukkoth program that visited a number of KKL-JNF sites in northern Israel over the holiday. The broadcast included interviews with KKL-JNF representatives and participants in the day’s events, together with quizzes with prizes for the winners.
