Maurice Klein speaks with L’Chaim – To Life radio tour guide Effi Yaacobi, who took us to the Upper Jordan Valley Jordan River Park Nature Reserve. "Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan…" (Jer 49:19). The Jordan River Park is by the eastern channel of the Jordan River and strictly speaking is in the Golan, however, it is only minutes from the north-east shore of Lake Kinneret. In sharp contrast to its legendary dimensions, the Jordan River is neither wide, nor deep, nor long, and according to the definition of many geographers it is a stream rather than a river. Nevertheless, for millions of people, it is a most important river. The Jordan and its banks are variegated, and one section is quite unlike the next. Between the Bnot Ya’akov Bridge and the Sea of Galilee, a distance of only 11 km, it becomes a gushing mountain stream, descending from an altitude of 70 m above sea level to 210 m below sea level, a major drop by any standard. As we hear from Effi, there is much to see and do in the Jordan River Park Nature Reserve. Contact Effi via email at efyaac@netvision.net.il.
