Bet Gabriel - A Special Place on the Sea of Galilee

Email

Bet GabrielNow is the time to a visit to the  Galilee, spring is at its best and the whole country is sparkling with colors. Better drive off the beaten route through Afula and along the slopes of Mount Tabor which are full with almond blossom.

 

On your way back after visiting the many sites around the Sea of Galilee we always take the "before driving back coffee" at a unique place called Bet Gabriel on the bank of the Sea of Galilee.

 

Bet Gabriel was built in memory of Gabriel Sherover, son of Gita Sherover, one of the most important philanthropists supporting Israeli culture.

 

The house is an architectural pearl situated on the south east bank of the Kineret. It serves as a community center, hosting cultural events and a beautiful art gallery exhibiting mostly local artists.

Bet Gabriel Cafe

The Café in the premises is one of the most beautiful places in Israel (servicing a fine dairy menu), and the scenery is for free.

 

The visit will also assist you to gauge the Israeli national mood, which is always considered to be affected by the level of the Kinneret - the only fresh water lake in the country. When the lake is full, the water will reach the lawn of the compound. You will see the extent of water shortage in the country since the water line is quite far away even at the end of the winter. It is easy to see that this the seventh consecutive dry winter.
