Directions to Tuval

The retreat will take place at Kibbutz Tuval, at the “Beit Hakerem” seminar centre.
Exact location in Google maps

By Vehicle
From route 85 turn north to road 854 (towards Ma’alot). After approx. 7 km turn west to road 8544 and drive on it another 5 km until you reach the kibbutz.
In order to make it easier to find the place, you can use the “Waze” application on your smartphone, and enter the destination: “Beit Hakerem Seminar Centre, Kibbutz Tuval”.
Please note – Waze will offer to take you through the village of Dir al Asad opposite Karmiel with winding and very steep roads.
We recommend not to drive through the village, but to continue straight at the Karmiel junction and turn left (for those coming from the west) to Route 854, which ascends to Tuval in a convenient way. Do not turn to Route 8534 Deir al-Asad / Ba’ana. But turn to route 854 – Ma’alot / Tefen.

By Public transportation
You can reach Karmiel and then continue by taxi, bus or a ride with other participants.
The simplest option is public transportation to Karmiel (bus or train), and from there with other participants or by taxi – this is a short trip.
Buses directly to Tuval (from Karmiel) depart with quite low and challenging availability, and therefore we recommend not to use this option or to plan it carefully in advance. You can check the exact schedule on the Nativ Express website in this link but the website is not available in the English language (only Hebrew and Arabic). The bus line is usually number 35.

By Ride Share / Carpool
As the registration progresses, and towards the date of the retreat, we will assist in connecting participants for ride sharing / carpooling. In addition, we will post a list for ride shares in the Facebook Event.
