Hamat Gader Springs, Israel

Nadene Goldfoot
This is Hamat Gader (El Hama) with a pool. It is one of 5 mineral springs and is famous since ancient times. People with arthritis come here for relief. 

 We were here with our class on January 23, 1981. It was great. We went into the water which was about 85 degree F. It looked like the garden of Eden to me, a truly beautiful oasis. This was a former Roman Springs. 

 We had a wonderful trip through the Upper Galilee, and included seeing Lake Tiberias on the Jordan border. 

 We planted trees for Tu Betshuat.
