Neot Semadar is located in the southern Negev about 70 km. north of Eilat. The kibbutz was established in 1989, on the grounds of an abandoned kibbutz, Shizafon..In Biblical times, the Arava was a center of copper production; King Solomon is believed to have had mines here. The Arabah was home to the Edomites (Edom was called "Idumea" in Roman times). East of the Arabah was the domain of the Nabateans, the builders of the city of Petra..Kibbutz Yotvata founded in 1957, was named for an ancient town in the area mentioned in the Bible. Kibbutz Lotan has a bird-watching center..The oldest moshav in the central Arava area is Ein Yahav..Olive oil is produced in a cold press set up with assistance from ICA and Israel's Ministry of Industry and Trade in 2001. The high-quality oil has been conferred the highest grade by Israel's Olive Council Kibbutz Operates a boutique organic winery and produces a variety of cheeses from fresh goat milk.. Its roadside restaurant, Pundak Neot Semadar, offers vegetarian food and sells the kibbutz's organic products.. The Art Center is open to visitors...

Samson (Hebrew: שִׁמְשׁוֹן, Modern Shimshon Tiberian Šimšôn, meaning "man of the sun"),Shamshoun ( شمشون‎ Shamshūn/Šamšūn), or Sampson ( Σαμψών), is one of the last of the Judges of the ancient Israelites mentioned in the Hebrew Bible (Book of Judges chapters 13 to 16)..According to the biblical account, Samson was given supernatural strength by God in order to combat his enemies and perform heroic feats such as killing a lion, slaying an entire army with only the jawbone of an ass, and destroying a pagan temple. Samson had two vulnerabilities, however: his attraction to untrustworthy women and his hair, without which he was powerless.. These vulnerabilities ultimately proved fatal for him..And Samson went to Gaza... And it came to pass afterward, that he loved a woman in the brook/valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah. And the lords of the Philistines came up to her, and said to her: 'Entice him, and see wherein his great strength lies, and by what means we may prevail against him, that we may bind him to afflict him..The Nahal Sorek Nature Reserve, first declared in 1965, and since expanded, spans over 11000 dunams,from the Avshalom Cave Nature Reserve near Beit Shemesh, to moshav Nes Harim... least our brothers in the Sanhedrin who condemned him didn't know him.. The Romans, they did not know HIM..Apart from PP.. But we... we ate with Him. We lived with Him..And still we betrayed Him.. Brothers can't you see.. Even with my eyes wide open I can't see a thing..This must be quite a sight! I'm Guiding a Masseur...
