Shavuot is here again, which means it’s time to get out into nature and enjoy the wonderful weather. Also known in modern times as the holiday of water, Shavuot marks the wheat harvest in the Land of Israel. There are so many amazing activities planned for this holiday, including water hikes, harvest festivals and celebrations at national heritage sites. Here is a list of some of the most exciting events.


Kibbutz Ramat Rahel will be holding Shavuot activities for visitors, including a parade with first fruits that were grown on the kibbutz. Babies who were born in the past year will be a main focus of the parade. There will also be performances, artsand-crafts booths, pita baking on a traditional taboun clay oven, dancing in a circle to the beat of the drum, moon-bounces and even camel rides. In addition, visitors can purchase fresh produce grown on the kibbutz.

Date: Monday, May 21, from 10 a.m.
