The Neot Kedumim nature reserve is located in the heart of the Modiin area - the ancient home of the Hasmoneans. Here on one of the hills, two thousand years ago, was the village where Mattityahu and his sons lived, and from here the call rose up to revolt against the Greeks.

The tour passes through stations and activities that teach about the Hasmoneans' way of life: why did they go to such great lengths to produce olive oil and what were its various uses, what other oils were used for the household lamps, and where did the best olive oil come from to light the Menorah in the Beit HaMikdash.

The tour includes:

  • Visiting a dark cave - where you will hear fascinating and heroic stories about the Hasmoneans
  • Writing messages in ancient Hebrew script on pottery with ink and quills
  • A tour among the fresh olive groves and a visit to an active olive press
  • Minting a victory coin like the one minted by the Maccabees
  • Crafts and oil candle making
