The end of the school year is approaching, and hints of summer vacation can be felt in the air. Many of you are still planning your summer holidays and I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that instead of hopping on a plane to go overseas, it’s worth your while to look into the attractions and entertainment opportunities here in our small country that will leave your children happy and relaxed.Today, I’d like to take you on a trip to northern Israel, where there is a plethora of activities, gorgeous views and excellent food and wine. One of my favorite places in the Golan Heights is Kibbutz Ortal, which is located near Mount Bental, Ein Zivan and Merom Golan. The kibbutz is near a number of nature reserves, water sources and hiking trails, which makes it an extremely attractive place to visit.
