STREAM
An ancient stream flows through Ein Yael which will serve as the site of various reenactments of Biblical events recorded in the Bible such as the two examples below:


MIRIAM
Following the miraculous crossing of the Red Sea by Moses and the Children of Israel, his sister Miriam and the women of Israel commemorated the triumph on the shores through a dance and song of thanksgiving to the words of “Sing unto the Lord for he has gloriously triumphed. Egyptian horses and riders he has thrown into the water.” After this celebration Moses led the people on to the next station in their trek to the Promised Land — to Mt. Sinai.

GIDEON
After Joshua and the Israelite tribes occupied the Land of Israel, the Midianites crossed into the Valley of Yizrael, plundering and destroying Israelite villages. Gideon proved himself a man of great leadership and strength. He called up an army, and 32,000 arrived – far too many than required. So he put the men to a test at the shore of the Harod Stream and selected the strongest to lead into battle.

The attack came in the dark of night when the Israeli army took to the hills surrounding the Midianite camp and routed the enemy by blowing their trumpets and smashing pitchers – scaring their adversaries to run away, so that peace once again returned to the tribes of Israel.
