Heritage Sites

Watchman's House at Kfar Giladi

The “Beit HaShomer” museum was set up by the members of “Hashomer” to commemorate the organization’s heritage. “Hashomer” people were innovators during the time of the Second Aliyah by creating a guarding organization and defending the Jewish population Land of Israel (the “Yishuv”), in Hebrew agricultural labour and establishing settlements.

The museum displays bronze statues by sculptor Batya Lishansky, short films depicting the experiences of a “Hashomer” member through letters to his family. Spectacular photos by photographers of the age: Leo Kahn and Abraham Suskin, authentic exhibits: clothing objects, weapons, farmer tools and more. As a conclusion a film is shown which describes the activity of the organization following its dismantling until the events of 1929, as told by the members’ descendants.

What’s at the site: “Hashomer” Archive Museum, the Gallery of sculptor Batya Lishansky, laureate of the Israel Prize and sculptor of the Second Aliyah, a convention hall and an observation tower overlooking a breathtaking view.

For the general public: extra-museum tours : a visit to a genuine weapon hiding place (slick), the Kfar Giladi Pioneers’ Courtyard, the graves of “Hashomer” members and the site of the Roaring Lion.

For children: costumes in the spirit of the age and assignment sheets.
