Summer is a great time to explore all the nooks and crannies of our small country, and one of my favorite places to visit is a spot in the farthest-north corner of the Galilee panhandle: Kibbutz Kfar Giladi.

One of the most veteran communities in the North, its proximity to a number of water sources makes Kfar Giladi an extremely popular location for travelers. Located just south of Metulla and the Lebanese border, the kibbutz was established in 1916, during World War I, by Hashomer, a Jewish defense organization founded to guard Jewish settlements and free these communities from dependence upon Arab watchmen for their security. Among the founders of the kibbutz were Yisrael Giladi, Yosef Trumpeldor, Alexander Zaid and Israel and Manya Shochat, whose actions affected the course of history in the pre-state days.
