Timna Park is located about 25 km (about 17 miles) north of Eilat in Israel’s Negev Desert. One of the largest attractions in the south of Israel, the park, set in a beautifully majestic desert setting, has amazing history and geology, and a number of unexpected activities including those on the lake (yes, a lake in the desert!). Timna Park covers about 15,000 acres in a horseshoe-shaped valley surrounded by steep cliffs, with Mount Timna, the
world’s first ever copper mine, standing tall in the center.
Here is an update and needs about about the repairs to the park after massive storm damage the weekend before Purim. Click here for more information.
Upgrades to the Jewish National Fund Chudnow Visitors' Center
We are in the middle of creating an interactive exhibition for the Jewish National Fund Chudnow visitors center. We have raised 2.6 million shekels for this program and are currently trying to raise an additional 400,000 shekels to complete the funding. This project has already started so any donations are helpful. It is worth noting that this is integral to the "Day After Plan" for tourism because rural tourism in Israel will be allowed to start operating before the general tourism market. It is clear that this year the region will see more domestic tourism than in previous years if the infrastructure is in place to absorb this potential market.
