Desert Huts

A "Succah" (plural Succot) is the Biblical term for the temporary dwellings that the Israelites lived in during their forty years of wandering through the desert: from slavery to the mountain and from the mountain to the land. For seven days a year, during the autumn festival of Succot ("Tabernacles"), Succot are built and lived by Jews all over the world. The Succah has become the symbol of true freedom through trust, in contrast to the illusion of security that we create within our "permanent" dwelling places. 

Our Succot are made of soft materials like: wood, fabric and palm leaves. Each Succah is a 150M apart from one another which allow you to enjoy your privacy and the silence of the desert. The Succah is suitable for all seasons, warm in the winter and cool and breezy in the summer. 

Inside the Succah it is tastefully furnished with rugs and other fabrics. Each Succah is supplied with a trowel, an earthenware water jar, comfortable beds, candles and solar powered lightning. 

Each Succah has different size, decoration and atmosphere. 
Each Succah was placed in the wadi and on the hills according to energetic based-on decisions. 

 

The succot are scattered throughout the wadi and on hills at 150 m from each other to ensure privacy. Our large succah, ("Moadim"), accommodates several couples or two families at once. 

Each succah features comfortable beds and a sitting area that can be turned into an additional sleeping corner, plenty of bedding and linen, solar lighting, a heater, a water pitcher for drinking or washing, and a hot drink area.

In the summer the succot are cool and ventilated; in the winter they are warm. Bathrooms and showers are shared. 

The gong sound invites guests to the central succah for our delicious breakfasts and dinners.

We offer home-made, richly flavored vegetarian food: soups, vegetable dishes, legume and vegetable stews, pies, past and much more.
