Sites - Israel: Yad Hashmonah
Ancient Israel Sites

Yad Hashmonah The community of Yad Hashmonah in the western Judean Mountains, with its hands-on display of ancient farming techniques, burial cave, synagogue and more, can truly be said to have the Bible in its backyard. Yad Hashmonah was founded in 1971 by Finnish Christians who first made their living as carpenters. Its name means “memorial to the eight,” named after the only eight Jews to lose their lives to the Nazis out of some 2,000 Jewish refugees whom Finland sheltered during the Holocaust. On a tour of Yad Hashmonah`s Biblical Garden, you`ll see a threshing floor, grape press and olive press, where biblical fruit (Deut. 8:8) is processed in season. You can even try your hand at sheep-shearing and goat- milking! At the mikveh, or ritual bath, you`ll learn about ideas of purification in Jesus` time. A watchtower, recalling Isaiah`s Song of the Vineyard (5:1-2), is another highlight. The beautiful sunset glimpsed from the reconstructed synagogue make afternoon visits to the site particularly memorable. (Israel Minister of Tourism)

Yad Hashmonah in Wikipedia Yad Hashmona (Hebrew: יַד הַשְּׁמוֹנָה‎, lit. Memorial for the Eight) is a small moshav shitufi in central Israel, located in the Judean Mountains on the outskirts of Jerusalem, within the jurisdiction of Mateh Yehuda Regional Council. The village was originally founded in the early 1970s by Finnish Christians but is today populated mainly by native Israeli Messianic Jews. In 2006 it had a population of 93. History - Yad Hashmona was founded in 1971 as a gesture of solidarity with the State of Israel. It is named for eight Jewish refugees from Austria who escaped to Finland in 1938. The Finnish government, collaborating with the Nazis, handed the refugees over to the Gestapo in 1942. Seven of them died in Auschwitz.[1] Economy - The community runs a guesthouse, convention center and banquet hall. In 2000, a biblical village was inaugurated with the assistance of the Swiss Beth Shalom society and the Israel Antiquities Authority.[2] A Biblical garden planted on the hillside provides a glimpse of agriculture in ancient times.[3]
