ESRA Netanya invites you on a bus trip to Zippori and Bet She’arim (where Jewish world meets Pagan/Christian world)
with licensed tour guide Stephen Kliner.


Come explore Zippori and Bet She’arim and hear the amazing stories of the migration of the Jews from Jerusalem to the western lower Galilee.
Follow the route of their expulsion from Jerusalem after the Bar Kochba Revolt in 135 CE.
See how Jews, Pagans and Christians co-existed.


Visit the remains of the magnificent Jewish Roman city of Sepphoris (Zippori) and walk along the system of streets, water reservoirs and among the dwellings of the Talmudic period. Visit the grand public buildings – theatre, bathhouses, synagogue and churches and see the iconic mosaic in the Dionysus House.


In Bet She’arim we will explore further the story of the migration of the Jews north and pay respects to the the 2nd Century Rabbi Yehuda HaNasi, the chief redactor and editor of the Mishnah.


Our final stop will enable you to savour the amazing sight, smell and taste of the Spice Way (Derech HaTavlinim) located in Bethlehem Haglilit where you can buy, or just browse, from amongst a staggering selection of spices and herbs..….. A fun packed trip!
