Kvutzat Kinneret Eucalyptus Groves

Email

Kvutzat Kinneret is a Kibbutz on the south western shores of the Sea of Galilee a few minutes south of Tiberias and north of Bet Gabriel and next to the first Kibbutz Deganya. Here is a short blog from one of our regular readers.


We walked in  the eucalyptus groves by Kvutzat Kinneret; there are a few small lakes in swampy ground and surrounded by eucalyptus trees. Naomi Shemer, one of Israel's foremost songwriters and poets and the composer of  the famous song Yerushalayim Shel Zahav (Jerusalem of Gold ) was born on the nearby Kvutzat Kinneret. She walked through these Eucalyptus Groves on her way to school and many of the themes in her songs came from these experiences for example the song Churshat HaEucalyptus (the Eucalyptus Grove) The views here are utterly stunning and there is also lots of wildlife. We have never been here before although it is so accessible from the main road.
