Bein HaZmanim in Tiberias

Vacation in the Galilee, Northern Israel

Summertime at the Sea of Galilee is definitely for the lovers of heat, but that does not seem to slow down the steady stream of tourists from all over the world. Vacation homes in Tiberias are harder to find, especially at affordable rates, but we have great vacation apartments at affordable prices.

For Israelis, the prime vacation time is Ben HaZmanim, the three weeks following Tisha b’Av. Come to the boardwalk during this time and you will find yourself in the midst of a sea of people. During this time, Tiberias becomes the city that doesn’t sleep.

The best way to spend the hot, sunny days is at the beach. The Kineret, Sea of Galilee, is lined with beaches, regular and religious. In the evening, grab a speedboat and whip around the Kineret at record speed. Or, if you prefer something slower, take one of the large boats that float around the Sea of Galilee throughout the night, with food, drinks and space for dancing. The walkway is lined with booths offering everything from unique art to unique toys. There are pony rides for the kids and, of course, lots of food vendors, in addition to the gourmet restaurants.

Tiberias is one of the four Holy cities for two reasons: (1) It is the last place where the Sanhedrin sat and (2) kevrei Tzaddikim–graves of holy people. The most well-known, of course, are Kever Rambam, Rabbi Akiva, Ramchal, and R. Akia, but the ancient cemetery of Tveria holds the graves of many Tzaddikim, including dozens of the students of the Ba’al Shem Tov. Near to the cemetery is the kever of Rachel, wife of Rabbi Akiva.
