Shalom! Mount Carmel

Shalom! Continuing our journey in Israel, if you missed my earlier post, check out  Shalom! Israel.

After departing from Caesarea , our next stop was to Mount Carmel before calling it a day. We arrived at the south-eastern peak of Mount Carmel, Muhraka – Discalced Carmelite Order Sanctuary and Convent.  It is marked by a dramatic stone statue of Elijah raising his sword to heaven as he slaughtered a Baal priest.

After a long day, we checked-in at Nof Ginosar Kibbutz Hotel at the north shore of the Sea of Galilee, a cosy village hotel.  Nof Ginosar Hotel is located in the Kibbutz area.  Kibbutz is a Hebrew word for “communal settlement”.  It is a unique rural community in Israel; a society dedicated to mutual aid and social justice; the fulfillment of the idea “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”; a home for those who have chosen it.
