Preserving Ramot Forest Mitzpe Naftoah
The Ramot Forest is a lovely green area for the residents of Jerusalem in general and the Ramot neighborhood, in particular.
The forest has ecological importance and is a natural habitat for deer herds that face danger of global extinction, various bird species and nearly 500 species of unique plants.
Ramot for the Environment is an association of local residents who have been working for the past 20 years to preserve the Ramot Forest as a nature spot in face of the various construction plans. The group has been working tirelessly to preserve the place through activities for the general public, information and education.
Want to join the association's activities and preserve the forest and deer?
Please contact Ramot for the Environment and its chairman, Ms. Hillary Herzberger
Bible Land Park KKL-JNF Ramot-Moreshet | Education community
Bible Land Park is an unusual community resource in the JNF Forest near Gan Hakipod.
The park combines historic and contemporary values.
The park is located right on the route pilgrims used to travel to Jerusalem for the three festivals during the First and Second Temple periods. In the park, excavations have uncovered 6 wine cellars that are assumed to have supplied the Temple with wine as well as an agricultural village that supplied produce to ancient Jerusalem. The Israel Antiquities Authority and academic institutions have begun excavations, and the JNF is assisting with the infrastructure.
The goal is to restore and develop these special findings for education purposes and to deepen the connection of the Jewish people with the Land.
Ramot Community Center takes care of the site with the help of local volunteers, educational institutions and other partners.
Plans are currently being made to implement the contemporary dimension on the foundations of local history.
