Religious Kibbutz Tirat Zvi is situated in Israel, on the vast territory of the Beit She'an Valley. Temperature record was placed there in 1942; in the midst of hot summer air warmed up to 53.9°C. Despite these natural anomalies, people have been living in the settlement for hundreds of years and have learned to escape from a perilous heat. Their homes are equipped with tents, in the shade of which it’s always possible to shelter from the hot sun. Ponds situated around the settlement also help local residents.
According to the latest census, at least 700 people live in kibbutz. The settlement was founded relatively recently, in 1937. Currently Tirat Zvi is one of the nation's largest mass production centers, as well as a leader in production dates. Arid climate is ideal for growing lulav; this plant has long been used during religious holiday of Sukkot. Plant is collected in spring, while the holiday is in autumn. Local experts together with scientists of Volcani Institute developed a special technology to save this unique plant; thanks to that lulav can be preserved for several months.
Kibbutz was named in honor of Rabbi Zvi Hirsch Kalisher; its name literally translates as ‘Zvi Fortress.’ The settlement is a really saving fortress for hundreds of local residents. Today, this sultry Israel city practically doesn’t differ from the way of life in other localities of the country. Next - Rub al-Khali
