Praying for Rain in a Dry and Thirsty Land
Even without the expected winter rainfall, Nahal Peres remains one of Israel’s most beautiful hikes

Nahal Peres typically gathers an abundance of rain water during the winter months, making it one of the more beautiful nature hikes in the country and an ideal place to cool off in the hot desert climate.
Israel isn’t facing drought conditions as it has for much of the past decade, thank God. But as we pointed out last week, the winter has by this point been less wet than experts had hoped.
