Assif (Harvest) Seminar in the Arava Desert

Sunday - Tuesday July 16-18, 2023

Assif Retreat Location

The seminar will be held in the wonderful and luxurious hospitality complex of ‘Nof Zuqim’

2 guests will be staying in each cabin. Each cabin has a bedroom and a living room. There are two sleeping arrangements to choose from: 2 separate beds in the same room or 1 guest in the bedroom and 1 in a pull-out bed in the living room. In several of the cabins, only the second option is available. In addition, there are 2 villas with 3 bedrooms and a living room in each, 4 guests will be able to stay in each villa.

As shown on the website, the resort is relatively large and commands a short walk between the Cabins, the Dining room, and the Workshop Center. Participants who need assistance will be able to use the resort golf cart that will be available to the seminar staff.

The meals at the seminar are vegetarian. Meals included are: Dinner on the first evening, three meals on day 2, breakfast and lunch on day 3. Refreshments including water, hot drinks, fruit and cookies will be available throughout the duration of the seminar.

Important Information:

A night walk in the desert surrounding the resort is scheduled for the Second evening. Please note that it is very hot in the Arava during July, and the workshop center where we will conduct most of the activity is air-conditioned. There is also a wading pool in the central area, and a jacuzzi in each cabin. Please keep all these in mind when packing and plan accordingly in terms of clothing and other items, such as a small Backpack, Comfortable Walking Shoes, a Hat, a Water Bottle, etc.
