Nahal HaShofet [the Judge's stream] is a green and   beautiful place in Menashe Heights. The ingredients that make   this area so special for the visitor are its clean air, the hills which   are spackled with dreamy settlements, the seasonal blossoming  e.g. the deep pink of Juda's tree during springtime, and the  perennial streams with their foamy hasty water.

Travel to Nazareth

Dinner:  "Makom b’Sejera"
“The restaurant's philosophy is one of heightened environmental awareness - the vegetables are organically homegrown on the premises and the main courses -- meat, game and fish -- are organically fed and hormone-free.
