Kibbutz Ketura Guest House

What do our customers tell us about us?

Arielle – Israel

Wow, my time at Kibbutz Ketura was truly amazing. Everyone was kind and helpful. Everything I needed was available and the entire facility was clean and well taken cared of. Max was so knowledgeable and made everyone in our group feel comfortable. The rooms were nice, the electronic key card access was definitely appreciated! Would definitely come here again!

Katharina – Germany

If you are interested in getting to know the Kibbuz lifestyle, then Kibbuz Ketura is the place to go.
The guesthouse is located directly within the Kibbutz. Breakfast and optionally dinner are served in the communal dining hall with all the other Kibbutz members. Additionally there is a coffee shop near the guest houses offering plenty of snacks and drinks plus they sell the Kibbuz’s own beer.
In our short 1 night stay we went hiking around the compound, used the pool and took part in the extremely informative tour about Kibbutz Ketura (Thank you Max!).

Tracey – Israel

We loved it’s charm and homeliness. Great attention to detail makes Ketura so much more than the sum of its parts. The Swimming pool it’s crowning glory with its delightful view.

Our activities


The Keren Kolot Educational Foundation

The Keren Kolot Educational Foundation was founded following Kibbutz Ketura receiving the Israel Speaker of the Knesset Award in 1987 in recognition of its achievement in co-existence between religiously observant and non-observant Jews.  

It has since expanded to become a major force in innovative educational programming, hosting some 6,000 people a year in many programs lasting from a half-day to three months. Keren Kolot’s dedicated staff facilitates open ended, “hands-on” encounters with textual material while utilizing the desert environment. The staff often creates new activities and programs to suit the needs of individual clients.
