Nature disguises itself in cliff springs

We like to dress up, but we did not invent the whole subject of costumes. Camouflage and deception have always existed in nature. Some animals are considered camouflage champions. Want to know why? In honor of Purim, there will be a special tour of the hidden reserve in Einot Tzukim, during which you will be able to track the camouflage of the animals, see natural phenomena unique to the Dead Sea area and meet the animals that live in the reserve.

where: Einot Tzukim Nature Reserve.
When: Fridays to Sundays, 26.2 – 28.2, at: 10:00, 12:00, 14:00.
The tour is limited to registrants in accordance with the instructions of the purple character. No extra charge for the entrance fee to the site.

What is it like to be a leader?

On Purim this year and just before the election, anyone can feel like a leader in the Ben-Gurion hut in Sde Boker. In addition to the regular activities at the place, a variety of costumes by various leaders in Israel and around the world will be waiting at the entrance to the hut. Anyone who wants to can dress up as a leader from the present and past, for example Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi and even our ancestor Abraham. In addition, everyone who searches will receive an information tab about the character he or she is looking for, and with its help he or she will be able to find the character throughout the site.

At the same time, visitors will be able to visit “The Old Man and the People” – a colorful exhibition that interactively describes the interaction that Ben-Gurion had with the people.
And if you’re already interested in heritage, you can continue from the hut to the Ben-Gurion Institute of Heritage, which is a five-minute drive away, and watch “The Law of the People” – a new interactive exhibit where critics are the jury to digitally decide fateful decisions in the country’s history.

Plants dress up

On the occasion of Purim, the University Botanical Garden in Givat Ram Jerusalem invites travelers to a magical visit between the garden paths, which covers 120 dunams. This year, in the spirit of the holiday, special activities on the subject of disguised plants will be held in the garden.

While we usually only dress up once a year, there are plants around us that dress up for various reasons: survival needs, attracting insects and more. Visitors to the garden will be able to take part in a guided tour and see up close plants like the bee that disguises itself as a bee female to attract male bees, and a bird of paradise, a beautiful flower that looks like a bird.

Another tour that will go out during the holiday is a tour of the tropical greenhouse. About 300 different and special plant species with different shapes, colors and uses grow in the greenhouse.

In addition, there will be a plant-inspired costume workshop, an award-winning costume contest and a tour of the garden train – which leaves every hour and takes visitors on a tour of the flowers, trees and about 6,000 other species and varieties of various plants.
