Galilee Mitzpim They also parallel another development in the settlement field in a very different, less controversial, area within Israel: this is the Galilee, where Jewish population was sparse and where new initiatives to enhance it were unfolded in the late 1970s. The Galilee, despite in many ways being one of the central areas of hityashvut since the early years of the century, had been in a somewhat anomalous position in the early decades of statehood. There was a large Arab population that had stayed in place in 1948 and had ultimately been included in the post-war Jewish State. In large areas of the north, where Jewish settlement was fairly scarce, there was a substantial Arab minority. Occasional discomfort had been expressed over the situation through the years; Menachem Begin's first government decided that the time had come to act. A plan was developed for a series of settlements, called Mitzpim (look-outs), to be placed on the higher topographical points of the areas defined as priorities. Some of these settlements would be kibbutzim, others would be moshavim, but the majority would be once again, non-collective dormitory communities from which the population would be expected to commute to their chosen place of work. One of the interesting features of the mitzpe communities was that some of them had clear ideologies that were not connected to the traditional Zionist ideologies, as defined previous waves of settlement and continued to define the settlements in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza strip. These were ideologies of spiritual improvement: one community was defined by a philosophy of anthroposophy, associated with the Austrian thinker Rudolf Steiner; another was dedicated to the idea of meditation. These ideas were representative of changes occuring at a deeper level in the society at large. Increasingly, there was a turning away from the large national ideas, towards a search for more personal satisfaction, for more inner peace. The sheer physical beauty of the Galilean hilltops were likely to draw at least some of these seekers, and so a new type of settlement was born. The primary purpose of this investigation is to look at mitzpim and yishuvim kehillatiim in the Galil and Golan, especially insofar as they represent the fourth frontier stage of rurban settlement based on what in Israel should not be called citybelts but community belts. Working as my assistants were Avi and Nomi Guter. I personally examined traditional kibbutzim and moshavim on the Golan; Katzrin (the city developed by Israel on the Golan); Karkom, a yishuv kehilati at the south end of the etzba haGalil overlooking the Jordan River just above its confluence with Lake Kinneret where it has a spectacular view of both the entire Kinneret on the south and Mount Hermon on the north; Carmiel in the central Galilee at the dividing point between the lower and upper Galil; and several mitzpim southwest of Carmiel including Yuvalim, Shorashim, Rakefet, and Misgav, the seat of the Moetza Azorit and its principal common institutions. The Guters looked at Karkom and the mitzpim as well as other mitzpim in the vicinity, principally Eshav. Altogether we looked at seven mitzpim of various kinds, two new towns, and several kibbutzim and moshavim as well as the more established kibbutzim of the Upper Galilee, Kiryat Shmona, Metula, Rosh Pina and Hatzor. What we noticed in every case was the development of the Galilee as a rurban frontier based upon relatively small groups of people from 25 to 200 families settling in a natural setting, usually on the top of a hill in a suburban-style settlement, gives them nice housing in the form of private free-standing homes, while they travel to work in nearby industries at cities and enterprises. These mitzpim and yishuvim kehilatiim are blossoming in all sizes and shapes, designed for different strata of people from upper professionals to the children of the moshavim in the area who are not the heirs of their family's moshav holding or who do not work in agriculture but who want to stay in the area. For example, the first 25 families who have moved into Karkom are mostly from the moshavim in the area including at least one teacher who grew up in the neighboring moshav Elifelet. Karkom is making a major effort to establish itself as a substantial yishuv kehilati. It is the designated site of a group called Hazon HaGalil (the Vision of the Galilee), organized in the Miami, Florida area, consisting of young American Jewish couples plus Israelis who have been in the United States for some years who plan to come back and settle there and build homes on very good terms, whereby they will receive housing plots for free and will be able to build four-level homes from different standard models for NS 100,000 a piece. They intend to build a joint enterprise in the form of a hotel servicing the handicapped and their families on the banks of Lake Kinneret just below the yishuv kehilati. It will be a resort hotel equipped with facilities for various kinds of handicapped to enable them to vacation with their families, provide activities that they and their families can engage in together. Karkom will form a link in the chain of settlements from Tiberias to Metula running in two parallel strips, one along the Tiberias-Metula highway and the other along the Jordan River about 5-10 km. from the highway. This will be a linear settlement belt anchored on the south end by Tiberias or maybe extending even further southward and on its northern end by Metula, punctuated by Rosh Pina, Hazor, and Kiryat Shmona in the middle. No point will be more than half an hour away from any city in the line. Every variety of community from traditional city, kibbutzim and moshavim, moshavot, yishuvim kehilatiim, and new town is available in this belt. A similar belt may develop along the edge of the Golan Heights from just above Tel Katzir at the southern end of the Heights to Katzrin, a little beyond the middle. These are more traditional kibbutzim and moshavim plus the city of Katzrin and they are a little far away from the center of things to form a full community belt, but there is already a chain in process. A very different kind of rurban belt is forming in the western lower Galilee. There, in the traditional Galilee fashion, settlement is circular (Galil means circle or wheel). Settlements on just about every hilltop, with Carmiel as the northEastern anchor and increasing at the center of the region, Ir Haveradim on the northwest, and the Haifa Bay cities (Akko and the Krayot) on the southwest. There, in addition to the suburban or exurban-like mitzpim themselves, major industries are being built in the countryside. Tefen and Rafael (Israel's military industry) are two good examples of major rurally-cited industries which draw employees from the mitzpim around or from Carmiel. While not nearly as selective as the cooperative and collective settlements, each mitzpe also tends to attract a certain type of people as any neighborhood would. Eshav is mixed -- religious, traditional, and non-religious. Shorashim is committed to the Masorti movement. Different levels of housing at different prices are available in different mitzpim or in the larger yishuvim kehilatiim and the different neighborhoods within them. One of the early problems of the mitzpim, that is to say, building houses without building infrastructure, seems to be in the process of being remedied. The government now is more likely to build infrastructure, roads, electricity, water, etc. along with the first houses. This has to be investigated more closely. The postage stamps and postal history of Israel is a survey of the postage stamps issued by the state of Israel, and its postal history, since independence was proclaimed on May 14, 1948. The first postage stamps were issued two days later on May 16, 1948. Pre-1948 postal history is discussed in postage stamps and postal history of Palestine. The postal history of Israel builds upon the centuries-long development of postal services in Palestine. During the rule of the Mamluks, mounted mail service was operated in Deir al-Balah, Lydda and other towns on the Cairo to Damascus route. During the Ottoman period, postal services relied upon Turkey's stamps (Palestine FAQ). Foreign consulates set up the early post offices. During World War I, the British Egyptian Expeditionary Force occupied Palestine and demarcated stamps as "E.E.F." in 1918. During the British Mandate, postage stamps and services were provided by British authorities. At first using temporary stamps issued in February 1918 by the British Expeditionary Forces in Palestine, and in February 1920 issuing permanent stamps bearing the imprint: "Palestine Eretz Israel." From 1933 to 1948, mandate services included airmail stamps and, as an innovation, air letter cards. British postal offices and operations were, in part, turned over to the Israeli government. In May 1948, as the British withdrew and postal services broke down, the provisional government issued overprints on Jewish National Fund stamps and ad hoc postage was created in Nahariya and Safed. In 1948, stamps were issued by Israel Post the Israeli postal operator. Because Saturday is a day of rest, Sunday, May 16, was the first business day after independence was declared on which stamps could be sold. The first set of stamps was entitled Doar Ivri ("Hebrew Post") because the country's name had not yet been chosen. The first set of definitive stamps included values of 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 50, 250, 500, and 1000 mils. The stamps were printed by letterpress, perforated or as a rouletted variation, and with Israel's emblematic "tabs" with marginalia about the stamp. Stamp booklets were issued for the 5, 10, 15 and 20 mil stamps. The Doar Ivri stamps were designed by Otte Wallish using ancient coins from the First Jewish–Roman War and later Bar Kokhba revolt (as pictured at top of article). Israeli stamps are trilingual, in Arabic, English and Hebrew, following the practice of the British Mandate of Palestine (as required by the League of Nations). Israel Post first issued postage due stamps, tête-bêche and gutter pairs in 1948, airmail stamps in 1950, service stamps, for government offices, in 1951 and provisional stamps in 1960. The tabs have gone through three unofficial phases. From 1948 to 1954, the tabs were written in Hebrew (with four exceptions: the Maccabia, Israel Bonds, Zionist Congress and Z.O.A stamps). From 1954 until 1967, the inscriptions were usually in Hebrew and French. Since 1967, the tabs are typically Hebrew and English. Rarely, a tab is matched with the wrong stamp, as with two mix-ups on some Doar Ivri stamps From the outset, Israel created its own commemorative cancellations, including a first day cancel for the new Doar Ivri on May 16, 1948, and cancels for the Maccabiah Games and its major cities the same year. By 1960, more than 325 unique postmarks had been designed.[] Beginning with the Doar Ivri stamps, too, Israel has provided first day covers. For instance, on July 5, 1967, a first day cover featuring Moshe Dayan was issued from the new post office in Jerusalem, soon after the Six-Day War.[ Israel has 64 post offices in 1950, expanding to 114 by 1960 and, after the Six-Day War, to 178 branches by 1970. In 1955, two settlements in the Negev began Israel's first mobile post office, a red truck. By 1990, Israel ran 53 routes for 1,058 locations, including Israeli settlements in the West Bank and Gaza. Due to hyperinflation, in 1982 and 1984 Israel issued non-denominated stamps with an olive branch design. These stamps were said to be dreary yet convenient, insofar as they avoided the need for both the government and the customers to constantly update their postage. During the 1990s, Israel experimented with vending machines for postal labels (franking labels). The Klussendorf machines and their labels were withdrawn from service in 1999. Twenty-two colorful designs were issued, including 12 tourist sites and seven holiday season designs. Israel Post also provides the Express Mail Service in cooperation with 143 other postal suthorities. The Israel Defense Forces provide mail services for the military. During the 1973 Yom Kippur War, for example, the IDF postal agency issued a series of postcards with cartoons to boost morale. Postcards show an Israeli cartoon character looming over Damascus, hail and fire raining down on Egyptian pyramids (quoting Exodus 9:24), and "Judgment Day, pictured here." Postage stamps In its early years, Israel issued stamps picturing the Jewish holidays, Jerusalem, Petah Tikva, the Negev, the Maccabiah Games, and Independence bonds. Every year, Israel issues a festival series to commemorate Rosh Hashanah. In 1948, the festival series featured the "flying scrolls." In a self-reflective gesture, the postal authority also issued a souvenir sheet commemorating its own first stamps. In 1952, Israel issued its first stamp honoring a named person, Chaim Weizmann. Other honorees of the 1950s included Theodor Herzl, Edmond de Rothschild, Albert Einstein, Sholem Aleichem, Hayim Nahman Bialik and Eliezer Ben-Yehuda. The first woman honored was Henrietta Szold (1960), the first rabbi was the Baal Shem Tov (1961), and the first non-Jew was Eleanor Roosevelt (1964). In 1998, Israel was the first country to honor Chiune Sugihara, who has since been honored on stamps from Gambia, Grenada, Guinea, Japan, Liberia, Lithuania, and Sierra Leone Stamps were issued in memory of two Arab leaders, King Hassan II of Morocco and King Hussein of Jordan, in 2000.Researchers at Emory University found that, through 2005, 161 Israeli stamps deal with women, though most do so anonymously. Of the 45 stamps dedicated to individual women, 11 concerned Biblical characters and eight were of fighters: Haviva Reik, Hannah Szenes, Rachel Yanait Ben Zvi, Rivka Guber, Rene Levy, Zivia Lubetkin Sarah Aaronsohn (pictured here), and an unnamed member of the Jewish BrigadeIsraeli stamps cover general themes, including philately itself, such as the 1954 stamp exhibition in Jerusalem, as well as themes emblematic of the state, such as Judaism and Jewish history. For instance, in its first 40 years, nearly 10% of Israeli stamps included archeological motifs, for intellectual and ideological reasonsThe country produced a total of 110 new issues in the 1960s, 151 in the 1970s, 162 in the 1980s and 216 in the 1990s. Israel Post produces several dozen new issues each year: 40 new issues in 2000, 33 in 2001, 50 in 2002, 46 in 2003, 38 in 2004, 42 in 2005, 38 in 2006, and 44 in 2007. In 2008, new issues have honored Israel Rokach and Akiva Aryeh Weiss, two UNESCO World Heritage Sites (The Biblical Tels and the Incense Route), and Mekorot (the national water system) Galilee (Hebrew: הגליל‎ HaGalil, lit: the province, Ancient Greek: Γαλιλαία, Latin: Galilaea, Arabic: الجليل‎ al-Jalīl) is a large region in northern Israel which overlaps with much of the administrative North District and Haifa District of the country. Traditionally divided into Upper Galilee (Hebrew: גליל עליון‎ Galil Elyon), Lower Galilee (Hebrew: גליל תחתון‎ Galil Tahton), and Western Galilee (Hebrew: גליל מערבי‎ Galil Ma'aravi), extending from Dan to the north, at the base of Mount Hermon, along Mount Lebanon to the ridges of Mount Carmel and Mount Gilboa north of Jenin and Tulkarm to the south, and from the Jordan Rift Valley to the east across the plains of the Jezreel Valley and Acre to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and the Coastal Plain in the west. Ranges of hills with high peaks, one river, many streams, dozens of brooks, primal landscapes, evergreen forests, dense natural groves, valleys, lakes, few residents and many hikers and tourists are what make the Galilee so special. The Galilee is a mountainous region in Israel’s north, and is divided into two main parts - the Upper Galilee to the north and the Lower Galilee to the south. The highest peak in the Upper Galilee is Mt. Meron, which rises 1,208 meters above sea level, while the highest point in the Lower Galilee is the summit of Mt. Kamon, at 602 meters above sea level. Thanks to the abundant water and the fertile soil in the Galilee’s valleys, this region has been relatively densely populated since ancient times and today has the largest variety of ethnic communities in Israel. There areDruze villages (Beit Jan, Peki’in) andCircassian (Reikhaniya, Kfar Kama) who preserve their ancient traditions; there are Arab villages with Muslim majorities (Kafr Yasif) or Christian majorities (Fasuta), or some with an equal balance (Ma’alot Tarkhisha). The Galilee is one of Israel’s main tourism centers, with dozens of different types of sites. For example, there are national antiquities parks (including Bar’am, Tsipori (Zippori), Beit She’arim,Monfort and Kohav Hayarden); moshava farming communities from the early days of the modern settlement of Israel, which tell the story of Zionism (Metula, Yesud Ha-Ma’ala, Rosh Pina); beautiful nature reserves (Hul Lake, Mt. Meron, Bar’am Forest, Nahal Kziv and many more); Jewish holy sites, such as the graves of the sages and ancient synagogues (inSafed (Tsfat) and Tiberias); and Christian holy sites that are visited by many pilgrims during their tour of the Holy Land (Nazareth, Kfar Nahum (Capernaum), the Jordan River and Lake Kineret).The large concentration of sites, the natural beauty and the breathtaking landscapes are what make the Galilee so unique. It has even been nicknamed the Israeli Tuscany or Provence. Either way, the Galilee is a fascinating area that offers dozens of touring and entertainment options. The Jewish National Fund (Hebrew: קרן קימת לישראל, Keren Kayemet LeYisrael) (abbreviated as JNF, and sometimes KKL) was founded in 1901 to buy and develop land in Ottoman Palestine (later British Mandate for Palestine, and subsequently Israel and the Palestinian territories) for Jewish settlement. The JNF is a quasi-governmental, non-profit organization.By 2007, it owned 13% of the total land in Israel. Since its inception, the JNF has planted over 240 million trees in Israel. It has also built 180 dams and reservoirs, developed 250,000 acres (1,000km2) of land and established more than 1,000 parks.In 2002, the JNF was awarded the Israel Prize for lifetime achievement and special contribution to society and the State of Israel.
