TIME: 8:30 A. M. - 4:30 P.M.
We're planning a trip to the Botanical Gardens in Kibbutz Ein Gedi. The staff there have devoted their lives to making the desert bloom and reintroducing many plants that were once indigenous to Eretz Yisrael. Among these plants are a number of ingredients in the Ketoret (the incense offering in Beit HaMikdash).
* On the Road: Ketoret presentation with essential oils of the various elements of the Ketoret by Bonnie Linder.
* Upon arrival, the "Rabbi" of the Kibbutz, Mani Gal, will give us a tour of the gardens with an emphasis on the elements of the Ketoret.
* Picnic lunch
Price: 200 sh.
