  • Rate
A thousand people participate in a nocturnal ascent to the top of Mount Meron on a memorial day for Theodor Herzl for the second year in a row. The event is organized by the Merom Galilee Regional Council in collaboration with the Ministry of Education. Hikers rest at the foot of the mountain in sleeping bags, sing in public, and ascend its paths in the dark. At sunrise, a ceremony is held to mark Herzls birthday on the Jewish date of Tammuz 20th, and the marchers are handed certificates.
