Event Details

Description

Join Jewish National Fund-USA’s Go North West and Arts & Entertainment Task Forces for a virtual tour of the Western Galilee. Led by Michal Shiloah Galnoor, we will meet local artists, small business owners, and experience the sights and sounds of this magnificent region. Learn about our Western Galilee Tourist Information Center in Akko, which is the gateway to the entire area and instrumental in fostering
co-existence between Arabs and Jews.

Tourism in the Western Galilee came to an abrupt halt, first with the COVID-19 pandemic and again during the recent conflict in Israel when the visitor center was vandalized not once, but twice. Together with our Arab neighbors we protected the center, but the damage was done. The building may have been damaged, but the hopes and dreams still live on.
