Mount Tabor, Kfar Tavor

#1 of 6 in Things to do in Kfar Tavor
Mentioned many times in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament, Mount Tabor draws pilgrims and tourists with its rich religious and historic background, as well as its scenic views of the valley. Many Christians consider this the site of Jesus' transfiguration, while for Jewish people it represents the battleground where the Israelite judge Deborah defeated the army of Jabin. The hill features a Franciscan basilica, a Greek Orthodox sanctuary, some Roman ruins, and the remains of 13th-century Crusader towers and walls. Two hiking trails lead to its top, where you may meet some local hang gliders about to launch.

  • The feast of the Ascension of the Lord Mount Tabor. This is a wonderful and unique place on Earth which have long dreamed of a visit being in Israel as a place of stay was very close and it would be a sin not to visit this biblical town but still in the feast of the Ascension of the Lord! Difficult and hard to get in his car but the last 3 km. had to walk to the top of the winding road to higher and higher. Equal has been sent to razvozke with breast kid and I together with his son-in-law stubbornly went up and came to the service, as well as on arrival of the Patriarch Theophilus took him with his wife's blessing! This may be a once in a lifetime and then by the grace of God!
