Israel Unlocked: A virtual tour of Galilee pioneers [THURSDAY]

Dear Times of Israel Community member,

Please join us this Thursday, May 13, for the next installment of our Israel Unlocked virtual tour series, exclusive to the ToI Community. This week, we will explore the Galilee, the popular northern Israel region for foreign and domestic tourists alike.

The north of Israel has always been on the cutting edge of societal experimentation. The growth of Christianity, the Tzfat Kabbalah revolution in the 16th century, the Druze community, the Bahai religion, and the kibbutz movement in the 20th century all found inspiration and a place to grow in the Galilee. Our expert guide Josh Hartuv will lead us as we experience the sights and sounds of the Galilee’s most famous figures and lesser-known stories that helped shape Israel and the world to this day.

About our guide: Josh Hartuv, a licensed Israeli tour guide, was one of the first guides to develop virtual tours when COVID-19 struck. The goal of his virtual experiences is to use the medium of the internet to bring Israel to life in ways that are actually impossible in person. Josh grew up in Hamilton, Ontario and made aliyah at age 22 to enlist in the Paratroopers as a lone soldier. He loves to show people of all ages and from all over the world his favorite sites and to tell the stories that make this land so fascinating.
