WELCOME TO THE RODEF SHALOM BIBLICAL BOTANICAL GARDEN10489625_671877672888510_2045522125004818996_n.jpg
Displaying the Agriculture, Horticulture, and Archeology of the Ancient Near East and our 2016 exhibit  “The Forests of Ancient Israel.”.

Enter the Holy Land, a replica of ancient Israel in our Biblical Botanical Garden with more than 100 temperate and tropical plants. See the land of the Bible, the Holy Land – ancient Israel, in a setting of a cascading waterfall, a desert, a bubbling stream, the Jordan, which meanders through the garden from Lake Kineret to the Dead Sea. Brochures and books are available. All plants are labeled. A Biblical verse accompanies each plant.

We feature biblical plants as well as numerous plants with biblical names.  Such plants demonstrate the universal love of the Bible as people in each century gave local plants a biblical name such as ‘Moses in the Basket’ or ‘Joseph’s Coat.’

Each season we focus on a special theme of ancient Near Eastern  horticulture or religious concerns  which divide us and add plants appropriate for that exhibit. Our theme 2016 is THE FORESTS OF ANCIENT ISRAEL
