Anata Bedouin tour and Home stay

Anata Is a large town located on the edge of the Jerusalem municipal boundary, at the entrance to the Judean Desert. The town is linked to the biblical Anatot, home of the prophet Jeremia. Nowadays it is home to a growing urban Palestinian population as well as Bedouins belonging to the Jahalin Bedouin tribe. Once nomadic, the Jahalin were expelled from the Israeli Negev in the 1950s after which they settled in the Judean desert. Living on the outskirts of Anata they are challenged by the temptations of modern life and the harsh difficulties of life under occupation. On our visit to the town we will visit Bedouin families, hear their stories and experience their unique cultural heritage.
