Meeting place: 78 Ben Zvi Rd.

A 90-minute tour led by Yossi Goldberg that will start with the well house on Ben Zvi Road and continue from there to HaHurshot Park to see the remnants of the pools and wells that were part of the citrus grove landscape in the area. The second part of the tour will include the nearby Russian Orthodox Church of St. Peter, which was built in the 19th century in a Russian style and is decorated with splendid frescos of saints and scenes from the New Testament. The church compound, which extends over an area of 5 acres, consists of the church, a graveyard, and a spacious and well-tended garden. According to Russian Orthodox tradition, Tabitha, who Peter raised from the dead, is buried there.
