Guided tours of Elon Moreh

Elon Moreh is an Orthodox community overlooking Nablus, biblical Shekhem, on the slopes of the Mount Kabir ridge. From here you can view Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal, the mounts of blessing and cursing respectively. Upon the latter one can see what is believed to be the altar that Joshua built.

Then Joshua built an altar to the LORD God of Israel in Mount Ebal, as Moses the servant of the LORD commanded the children of Israel as it is written in the Scroll of the Torah of Moses

Joshua 8:30

Today Elon Moreh is famous for its parchment factory for Torah scrolls. Itamar, Har Bracha Winery, and Mitzpe Yosef are just some of the other places we have visited in this biblically rich part of the Shomron.

And Abram passed through the land to the place of Shekhem unto Elon Moreh… and the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “to your seed will I give this land”

Genesis 12:6-7
