Jordan river southern of Sea of Galilee by 


The image was taken at the Jordan river very close to a Christian baptism site called Yardenit.
The Yardenit site have a nice dressing rooms, inside restaurant, outdoors bistro and souvenir shop.
Yardenit site is operated by kibutz Kinneret.

Kibutz kinneret is one of the first kibuzim. It is situated on a hill on the west bank of the Jorden river southern of the sea of Galilee(Kinneret in Hebrew).
Kibbutz Kinneret was established in 1913. Through most of its years the members of the Kibbutz earned their living from agriculture. The area typical weather forced the Kibbutz members to develop a wise agriculture based
on good and thrifty watering and fertilizing. The Kibbutz is famous for its Dates orchards.
The beginning of planting date in Israel began by a Kinneret member that brought branches from Iraq. The Kibbutz has an orchard of over 5000 date trees in different ages and in a variety composition of species. The Kibbutz
processes the fruit and creates from it a variety of secondary products that are being sold in local and abroad. In addition a unique dates shop was developed in the Kibbutz, which is another marketing source for
the date branch.

Naomi Shemer one of the best Israeli song writers and composers, was born in kibutz Kinneret. One of her first songs is called The Eucalyptus Grove she wrote it about the place shown in the image. She wrote the lyrics and melody.
Naomi Shemer is buried in the cemetery of the kibutz on the shore of the sea of Galilee (it is an historic site worth visiting).

You can see the Eucalyptus trees, they were brought here from Australia in the early days of the jewish setelment to help dry the swamps.

    Mosche this is such a wonderful picture. I have read about the Jordan all of my Christian life…and this is not what I imagined! I thought it would be bigger, browner…I’m not sure…but with the gums trees brought from Australia – this looks just like the river that runs by my house. This picture is nice than my imagination…I can see John the Baptist on the banks …thank you so much for sharing.

  • Estelle, I am happy you like this, actually I didn’t think to upload this image, but my wife told me you might be interested seeing some gums trees in Israel.

    Great picture! I have stood there on several occasions and let my imagination run wild with Christian thoughts of who may have stepped in that very place.
