About the City
Beit She’an | Small community, big heart
Beit She’an is a city of 20,000 residents located in the southern Galilee along the Jordan River Valley. Beit She’an locals are a blend of immigrants from Morocco, North Africa, Iraq, Persia, the Former Soviet Union, Ukraine and Ethiopia. It is well known for its warm and hospitable community and family atmosphere. Beit She’an is located in one of Israel’s most fertile regions. Many springs flow in the valley, the biggest attraction being, “Gan Hashelosha” (aka “The Sachne”). This park was chosen by Time Magazine as one of the 20 most beautiful sites in the world. The valley is well known for its warm climate which is an advantage in the winter.
Why Choose This Program?
Choose Beit Shean to experience the beauty of the Galilee countryside and for a taste of Israeli small town living. Fellows in Beit Shean receive additional programming benefits courtesy of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland and their longstanding relationship with Beit Shean.
As part of Israel Pathways, you will experience Israel outside of the classroom! Our Fellows take part in eight different weekend-long seminars throughout the country. These seminars bring together Israel Pathways participants from all of our programs throughout the country, as well as Israeli locals, so you will have the opportunity to meet a broad group of peers living all over Israel! We are very proud that Israel Pathways has been the most popular provider of Israel Teaching Fellows since the program’s inception in 2011. References are available upon request.
