The Shelter is the ideal accommodation to begin  your adventures, and our over 30 years in Eilat enables us to advise you concerning all your vacation and travel plans, including both popular and off the beaten track places . 

Petra – what is the best way to visit?

We can explain to you how to travel to Petra either independently or with an organized tour.

Write to us and we’ll send you the document we wrote with the information.

Activities – do you organize activities throughout the week?

Every morning at 11:00 we have a time of singing and Bible study in the Shelter’s succah for an hour. On Friday evening we have an international gospel meeting followed by a free meal for Shelter guests, local Eilati’s and others. Furthermore, we have other spontaneous community gatherings.

Values - do you have a particular worldview? 

We seek to live by the values as we understand them from the Old and New Testaments. Guests from all religions, backgrounds, and countries are welcome to stay with us. We respect others' worldviews and expect to have ours respected also.
