Pinsteps. Source Ain Hemed

Source Ain Hemed is one of the most common types of sources in the Jerusalem mountains. Water enters the source after it seeps through the upper layer of dolomite and encounters a rock that does not allow water to pass through. Water flows from settled in the rock. The source attributed healing and miraculous properties. Local Arab residents believe that the waters of the source affect male potency and help parents give birth to boys. The Jewish inhabitants of Jerusalem used this water to prepare the Passover matzoh, and the pool near the spring was the place to celebrate the tashlich rite on the eve of the Doomsday.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на epraisman@gmail.com и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

Ein Hemed Aqua Bela National Park

The pearl of nature in the Jerusalem mountains. Along the bed of the Kissalon creek there is a natural park. It is fed by the waters of the Ein Rafa spring. The ancients believed that it possesses healing properties, and the Crusaders built an estate here, which was used as a sanatorium for soldiers of the Hospitaller Order.
