Chol Hamoed Picnic!

The 4th annual picnic of Chabad English Speakers in Israel is almost here:) The Picnic and Barbeque is hosted this year by the Neve Chabad community in Be’er Sheva in partnership with Nefesh B’Nefesh and Chabad of Be’er Sheva.

We’ll provide Barbequed wings and wine, bring everything else.

Picnic starts at 2 PM at Gan HaPa’amon in Be’er Sheva. It’s a 15 minute walk from the Central Bus Station or Train Station.

Drive there using Waze:


There are many incredible attractions in and around Be’er Sheva that you may want to check out while you are here. The picnic starts at 2:00 so if you would like to come down to Be’er Sheva first thing in the morning you can make a great day out of it!

Be’er Avraham is located right next to the park where the picnic will be. This is the traditional site of Avraham’s well and has a great new multimedia visitors center. Tours are available every hour on the hour. Reservations must be made in advance. Each tour rotation is limited to 45 people.

We’ve arranged a special tour in English at 1:30 pm. If you are interested in joining this tour send an email to Michal Shaffier asap or call Be’er Avraham directly at 08-6234613 to reserve your spot. The tour is limited to 45 people and is by reservation ONLY.
