A wine tasting was held last week at the Bible Lands Museum in Jerusalem, featuring award-winning wines from the Kishor Winery.
These wines were produced by the members of Kishorit, a kibbutz of 175 people with special needs in the Western Galilee, where the Kishor Winery is located.

Israel’s First Lady Nechama Rivlin was among the distinguished guests who came to sip and celebrate the wine and the winery.
Amanda Weiss, the director of the Bible Lands Museum, and her husband, Tamir Freund, hosted the event, which featured live music performed by Kishorit resident Amit Cohen. Weiss told the guests that the kibbutz is an organization that she feels “so close to and cares so much about.”
