From the Director General

Dear Visitor,

It is said that ten measures of beauty descended upon the world and that nine of them were taken by Jerusalem. That's quite a reputation to live up to!

At the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens, we are constantly working to create a place of beauty, tranquility and peace in the heart of our complex city; to provide green vistas, enchanted corners, cooling water pools, and the largest plant collection in the country.

We welcome visitors from all sectors of society, from Jerusalem, Israel and overseas and we try to offer something for everyone, from tours and educational programs, to festivals and cultural events.

Please visit us, join our Friends organization, and become part of our efforts to green the City of Gold!


Oren Ben-Yosef

Director General
