|The best kept secret in Eretz Yisrael is the
hidden paradise of Neve Dekalim, the regional center of Gush Katif. It is located
among the palm trees on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
The pastoral atmosphere hides a community teeming with spiritual and cultural activities: Yeshivot, Kollilim, schools, libraries, a community center full of life, varied activities for all ages, even a "golden ages" club. There are many shiurim in various synagogues and homes. There is also a delightful zoo to keep the children happy and occupied.
Neve Dekalim is the home of the Regional Council on the Gaza coast, so all the government services are also at hand, as well as medical clinics, nurseries, kindergarten and even afternoon care for children who need it. There are a variety of stores for your convenience, as well as a bank and post office. Despite all this hustle and bustle, the usual passerby has time to smile and welcome a stranger. What sold us on Neve Dekalim is the warmth and loving kindness of the people who live here.
