You’re welcome! At Daher’s Vineyard, there is a growing community of people living and working on the land, as well as a steady stream of visitors and volunteers who come to enjoy the hospitality of the Nassar family, join in the activities of the community, and learn about the story of the land.

Many groups visit for a short tour, while other groups and individual volunteers stay for days, weeks or even months! The site can easily accomodate large numbers of people, and has hosted groups of up to 200 people in the past.

There’s no shortage of work to be done either – the farm has olive trees, vines, a mixture of fruit trees, organic vegetables, and a small herd of goats.

If you would be interested in visiting Daher’s Vineyard or volunteering with Tent of Nations then please contact us for more information.

Getting to Tent of Nations
Tent of Nations is a few kilometres from Bethlehem, close to the junction on Route 60 signposted ‘Neve Daniel’.

Directions from Jerusalem
If you are on public transport:

  • From the bus station near Damascus Gate in East Jerusalem take bus 21 to Beit Jalla / Bethlehem and get off at ‘Bab-ez-qaq’ junction. Catch a shared taxi from here and ask for ‘Kilo Sabatashar’ (kilometre seventeen). The taxi will drive along a road through Bethlehem before turning onto a large highway which is Route 60. You need to get off after about 5 minutes of driving along the highway at the bus stop referred to as ‘Kilo Sabatashar’. It’s by the junction signed for ‘Neve Daniel’ where the highway bends left. If in doubt, explain that you want to walk along the road to the village of ‘Nahalin’.
  • Or, from the main Israeli bus station take the Egged bus that goes down Route 60 and services the Neve Daniel Jewish settlement.

If you are travelling by car:

  • Take Route 60 south, before turning off after Bethlehem at the junction signposted ‘Neve Daniel’

From the Neve Daniel junction on route 60, it’s about a 10 minute walk to the farm along a small road which goes to the village of Nahalin.

Route 60 is the main North-South Israeli highway in this part of the West Bank running from Jerusalem.

Stop at ‘Kilo Sabatashar’ – Neve Daniel Junction (Route 60)

  • Ask for the bus stop known as ‘Kilo Sabatashar’ (Kilometre Seventeen).
  • The junction is signposted ‘Neve Daniel’ and is a right turn when travelling south on Route 60, about 2km past the Nashesh junction for Bethlehem, where the highway bends left.
  • If in doubt, explain to the taxi driver that you want to walk along the road to the village of Nahalin.

Walk along the road to Nahalin

  • Bear left off the Neve Daniel road and follow the small road over the ridge which leads to the village of Nahalin.
  • You will see the hill with Tent of Nations (2 buildings plus tents) ahead of you. Follow the road past the boulders until you reach the steep drive on the right with the metal chain gates.
  • Give someone a shout to come and open the gate!

Getting to Jerusalem from Ben Gurion Airport

  • You can get a bus or a ‘Sherut’ taxi from the airport to Jerusalem. The buses are cheaper (17 NIS) but are a lot more difficult – you have to get a bus to the Tel Aviv central bus station, and then another one to Jerusalem.
  • The Sherut taxis are the yellow or white minibus taxis on the right just outside the exit of the airport. They are more expensive (about 50NIS) but a lot easier and will drop you off wherever you ask in Jerusalem. So if you want to stay in a hostel in Jerusalem for the night before travelling to Tent of Nations then they can drop you there, or you could ask to be dropped by the Jaffa gate of the old city. It’s then a short walk around the outside of the old city walls to get to the bus station by the Damascus gate.
