The heart of the mountain

Here in Carmel, in the lower slopes of the Judean Mountains adjacent to the desert, we experience a life combined of rocky mountain and soft desert, of clear mountain air and the caressing dry desert air. Here live in harmony young and old, scholars and scientists alongside land workers, Torah scholars alongside men and women of action.
