Harod Spring No votes yet
The Harod Spring originates in a rocky cave on Mount Gilboa and flows along the park's lawns. According to the Bible the stream is where Gideon chose soldiers to fight the Midianites, with only 300 of them passing the test and accompanying Gideon in his conquest. Above the spring is the Hankin Museum which tells the story of Yehoshua Hankin, who purchased land in the valley in the early days of the Zionist enterprise. Group visits to the museum should be reserved by phone. A beautiful view of the valley can be enjoyed form the courtyard of the museum. A nearby cave was designated by Hankin as a tomb for himself and his wife Olga. The cave has two stone columns at the entrance, reminiscent of Talmudic-era caves. How to get there: Off road 71, 10km from Afula, adjacent to Moshav Gidona.
