Best Free Dead Sea Public Beaches in Israel
 
06:05
If you are looking for free Dead Sea Public Beaches in Israel you will have an easy job as there are at least a couple of them on the way down to Eilat. The closest to Jerusalem is past a military checkpoint, on the left side of the road. Park up your car and walk down to the water to enjoy the beach for free. If you want the comfort of a shower, then drive to Ein Bokek where all you need to pay for is the parking, otherwise the shower, the sand and sunbathing will all be free. These are the two free public beaches at the Dead Sea in Israel which I managed to discover during my holiday. If you know of more in Israel please post in the comments.

Kalya Beach -Dead Sea- Isreal
 
01:05
If you truly want to experience what the Dead Sea is all about, a visit to Kalia Beach, one of the best-known beaches of the Dead Sea, is a must. Kalia Beach is located in the northern area of the Dead Sea, a beautiful, calm spot away from the more crowded hotel area at Ein Bokek. A lovely terrace built above the beach provides a gorgeous view of the turquoise waters of the Dead Sea and the surrounding golden-brown mountains.

We climb to the peak of Mount Precipice, "glide" over the land to the Sea of Galilee, land on the water and "see" the miracle which enfolds before us. This is a many faceted experience.

TRIP TO DEAD SEA AND MASADA 🌊🏜🏝- VLOG
 
05:47
The Journey to the Holy Land continues as we travel to the Dead Sea and Masada. First stop is Masada, which is located on top of a mountain in the Judean desert about an hour and a half from Jerusalem. We take a funicular to the top to visit Masada which was King Herod, King of Judea's fortress which he built to protect himself from a revolt. It was a fortified temple that included his living quarters, a sauna, a swimming pool, a cistern with rainwater, all built in Roman style. After King Herod died, the Romans seized Masada and the Jewish rebels decided to die in suicide rather than at the hands of the Romans.The site is now place where the Israeli Army takes an oath to protect Israel. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as one of the most sacred site for the Jewish people. Next is the Dead Sea, which is located on the Israeli, Jordanian, and Palestinian desert land. We visit Kalia beach and float in the water. The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth at 394 meters below sea level. The water has an unusual salt concentration, giving it a natural buoyancy. We took a mud bath and floated in the water, one of the most surreal bucket list experiences.

Kalia Beach Gallery -430 Dead Sea גלריה מינוס 430 חוף קליה ים המלח
 
02:31
בשנת 1968 קמה היאחזות הנחל קליה והשתכנה במבנים של מחנה צבאי ירדני בחוף הצפוני של ים המלח. בשנת 1974 אוזרחה קליה והפכה לקיבוץ, ושנה לאחר מכן בנו החברים את משכנם החדש מערבה משם, למרגלות מצוק ההעתקים. המבנים הישנים ליד החוף נותרו מאז נטושים. בינתיים, מפלס ים המלח ירד מאז בכ-35 מטרים, והוא עומד עתה על 432 מטרים מתחת לפני הים. המפלס ממשיך לרדת בקצב של מעל מטר בשנה. מאז השיפוץ הנרחב של חופי הבריכות התעשייתיות בדרום ים המלח, שוב נדחק מסדר היום מצבו העגום של האגן הצפוני של הים, הוא ים המלח האמיתי. משום כך, יזמה הנהלת חוף קליה את פרויקט "גלריה 430-". מטרת הפרויקט להפיח חיים חדשים בקירות המבנים ששימשו את הקיבוץ בראשיתו, וכך לספר על החיים המתקיימים כיום בצפון ים המלח, והמוות המאיים עליהם. מיטב האמנים נענו להזמנה להגיע להתארח במקום וליצור בצבע. בסרטון זה נצפה בעבודת האמנים, ונפגוש את בשיר, תושב יריחו ועובד ותיק בחוף קליה, שצולם וצויר על ידי האמן ליברה ממקסיקו, ומגיע לבחון את הדיוקן שלו, שמפאר את הקיר של מה שהיה חדר האוכל של הקיבוץ... יש לקוות שהחייאת המבנים הישנים תהא סימן לחידוש הדיונים בנושא החייאת ים המלח. Kalia was founded as a Nahal soldiers settlement in 1968. Its members settled in former Jordanian military structures near the northern shores of the Dead Sea. In 1974 the settlement became a Kibbutz, and a year later, its members settled in a new location to the west. The structures remained abandoned ever since. In the meantime, the Dead Sea water level is dropping by 1.1 meters annually. Since the foundation of Kalia, it dropped about 35 meters. and currently is at 432 meters below sea level. To raise awareness to this acute environmental issue, Kalia Beach management invited artists from Israel and abroad to turn the abandoned structures of Old Kalia into works of art. Numerous artists now take part in the project, named "Gallery -430". In this video we shall see the artists at work, and meet Bashir - A resident of Jericho, part of Kalia Beach Staff, examining his portrait painted on the wall by the Mexican artist Libre.

Qumran   The Story Of The Dead Sea Scrolls with the tour guide Zahi Shaked

It is located on a dry plateau about a mile inland from the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea, near kibbutz of Kalia. The Hellenistic period settlement was constructed during the reign of John Hyrcanus, 134-104 BCE or somewhat later, and was occupied most of the time until it was destroyed by the Romans in 68 CE or shortly after. It is best known as the settlement nearest to the caves in which the Dead Sea Scrolls were hidden, caves in the sheer desert cliffs and beneath, in the marl terrace. Qumran is an archaeological site in Israel. It is located on a dry plateau about a mile inland from the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea, near kibbutz of Kalia. The Hellenistic period settlement was constructed during the reign of John Hyrcanus, 134-104 BCE or somewhat later, and was occupied most of the time until it was destroyed by the Romans in 68 CE or shortly after. It is best known as the settlement nearest to the caves in which the Dead Sea Scrolls were hidden, caves in the sheer desert cliffs and beneath, in the marl terrace. Since the discovery from 1947 to 1956 of nearly 900 scrolls in various conditions, mostly written on parchment, with others on papyrus, extensive excavations of the settlement have been undertaken. Cisterns, Jewish ritual baths, and cemeteries have been found, along with a dining or assembly room and debris from an upper story alleged by some to have been a scriptorium as well as pottery kilns and a tower. Many scholars believe the location to have been home to a Jewish sect, the Essenes being the preferred choice; others have proposed non-sectarian interpretations, some of these starting with the notion that it was a Hasmonean fort which was later transformed into a villa for a wealthy family or a production center, perhaps a pottery factory or similar. A large cemetery was discovered to the east of the site. While most of the graves contain the remains of males, some females were also discovered, though some burials may be from medieval times. Only a small portion of the graves were excavated, as excavating cemeteries is forbidden under Jewish law. Over a thousand bodies are buried at Qumran cemetery.[1] One theory is that bodies were those of generations of sectarians, while another is that they were brought to Qumran because burial was easier there than in rockier surrounding areas.[2] The scrolls were found in a series of eleven caves around the settlement, some accessible only through the settlement. Some scholars have claimed that the caves were the permanent libraries of the sect, due to the presence of the remains of a shelving system. Other scholars believe that some caves also served as domestic shelters for those living in the area. Many of the texts found in the caves appear to represent widely accepted Jewish beliefs and practices, while other texts appear to speak of divergent, unique, or minority interpretations and practices. Some scholars believe that some of these texts describe the beliefs of the inhabitants of Qumran, which, may have been the Essenes, or the asylum for supporters of the traditional priestly family of the Zadokites against the Hasmonean priest/kings. A literary epistle published in the 1990s expresses reasons for creating a community, some of which resemble Sadducean arguments in the Talmud.[3] Most of the scrolls seem to have been hidden in the caves during the turmoil of the First Jewish Revolt, though some of them may have been deposited earlier.

Surprising storm in Kalia Beach Dead Sea, Israel
 
02:54
Zahi Shaked A tour guide in Israel and his camera. +972 54 6905522 "Dead Sea" , "Sea of Salt", also called the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordering Jordan to the east, and Israel and the West Bank to the west. Its surface and shores are 422 metres (1,385 ft) below sea level,[2] the lowest elevation on the Earth's surface on dry land. The Dead Sea is 378 m (1,240 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. It is also one of the world's saltiest bodies of water, with 33.7% salinity. Only Lake Assal (Djibouti), Garabogazköl and some hypersaline lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica (such as Don Juan Pond) have a higher salinity. It is 8.6 times more salty than the ocean.[4] This salinity makes for a harsh environment where animals cannot flourish, hence its name. The Dead Sea is 67 kilometres (42 mi) long and 18 kilometres (11 mi) wide at its widest point. It lies in the Jordan Rift Valley, and its main tributary is the Jordan River. The Dead Sea has attracted visitors from around the Mediterranean basin for thousands of years. Biblically, it was a place of refuge for King David. It was one of the world's first health resorts (for Herod the Great), and it has been the supplier of a wide variety of products, from balms for Egyptian mummification to potash for fertilizers. People also use the salt and the minerals from the Dead Sea to create cosmetics and herbal sachets. In 2009, 1.2 million foreign tourists visited on the Israeli side. The sea has a density of 1.24kg/L, making swimming difficult.The Dead Sea is an endorheic lake located in the Jordan Rift Valley, a geographic feature formed by the Dead Sea Transform (DST). This left lateral-moving transform fault lies along the tectonic plate boundary between the African Plate and the Arabian Plate. It runs between the East Anatolian Fault zone in Turkey and the northern end of the Red Sea Rift offshore of the southern tip of Sinai. The Jordan River is the only major water source flowing into the Dead Sea, although there are small perennial springs under and around the Dead Sea, creating pools and quicksand pits along the edges.[7] There are no outlet streams. Rainfall is scarcely 100 mm (3.9 in) per year in the northern part of the Dead Sea and barely 50 mm (2.0 in) in the southern part. The Dead Sea zone's aridity is due to the rainshadow effect of the Judean Hills. The highlands east of the Dead Sea receive more rainfall than the Dead Sea itself. To the west of the Dead Sea, the Judean Hills rise less steeply and are much lower than the mountains to the east. Along the southwestern side of the lake is a 210 m (690 ft) tall halite formation called "Mount Sodom".There are two contending hypotheses about the origin of the low elevation of the Dead Sea. The older hypothesis is that it lies in a true rift zone, an extension of the Red Sea Rift, or even of the Great Rift Valley of eastern Africa. A more recent hypothesis is that the Dead Sea basin is a consequence of a "step-over" discontinuity along the Dead Sea Transform, creating extension of the crust with consequent subsidence. Around three million years ago, what is now the valley of the Jordan River, Dead Sea, and Wadi Arabah was repeatedly inundated by waters from the Mediterranean Sea. The waters formed in a narrow, crooked bay which was connected to the sea through what is now the Jezreel Valley. The floods of the valley came and went depending on long scale climate change. The lake that occupied the Dead Sea Rift, named "Lake Sodom", deposited beds of salt, eventually coming to be 3 km (1.9 mi) thick. Approximately two million years ago, the land between the Rift Valley and the Mediterranean Sea rose to such an extent that the ocean could no longer flood the area. Thus, the long bay became a lake.Masada (Hebrew מצדה, pronounced Metzada (help•info), from מצודה, metzuda, "fortress") is the name for a site of ancient palaces and fortifications in the South District of Israel on top of an isolated rock plateau, or horst, on the eastern edge of the Judean Desert overlooking the Dead Sea. After the First Jewish-Roman War a siege of the fortress by troops of the Roman Empire led to the mass suicide of the Sicarii rebels, who preferred death to surrender. It is located about 20 km east of Arad

Zahi Shaked A tour guide in Israel and his camera [email protected] +972-54-6905522 tel סיור עם מורה הדרך ומדריך הטיולים צחי שקד 0546905522 My name is Zahi Shaked In 2000 I became a registered liscenced tourist guide. My dedication in life is to pass on the ancient history of the Holy Land. Following upon many years of travel around the world, which was highlighted by a very exciting emotional and soul-searching meeting with the Dalai Lama, I realized that I had a mission. To pass on the the history of the Holy Land, its religions, and in particular, the birth and development of Christianity. In order to fulfill this "calling" in the best way possible, I studied in depth, visited, and personally experienced each and every important site of the ancient Christians. I studied for and received my first bachelors degree in the ancient history of the Holy Land, and am presently completing my studies for my second degree.(Masters) Parralel to my studies, and in order to earn a living, I was employed for many years in advertising. What I learned there was how to attract the publics attention, generate and, increase interest, and assimilate information. All this I use as tools to describe, explain and deepen the interest in the sites that we visit. From my experience, I have learned that in this way, the Holy Land becomes more than just history, and that the large stones that we see scattered about in dissaray, join together one by one until they become - a Byzantine Church. This also happens when I lead a group of Pilgrims in the Steps of Jesus. We climb to the peak of Mount Precipice, "glide" over the land to the Sea of Galilee, land on the water and "see" the miracle which enfolds before us. This is a many faceted experience. Not only history which you will remember and cherish, but an experience which I hope will be inplanted in your hearts and minds, and will accompany you all the days of your life.
