Ein Gedi Kibbutz Hotel
(Situated near the shores of the Dead Sea)
Forming part of the Great African Rift Valley between the Judean hills and the Moab Mountains, at 400 meters below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth. This desert area is well known for its therapeutic qualities and enjoys sunny weather throughout the year. There are many sites of historical and natural interest in the area such as the ancient Fortress of Massada and the Qumran National Park, where the famous Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. This stunning and peaceful desert oasis provides a perfect location for our Seminar.
The travel time to the venue from Jerusalem is approximately 80 minutes, and between 2-2½ hours from Ben Gurion Airport.
The Conference will be conducted in English.
