Just across the street – our synagogue and a magnificent children’s playground. Outdoor gym facilities are just under our house.

OFRA is located about 25 km north of Jerusalem, an hour’s drive from the Dan region. It is set under the Hazor mountain, where Abraham was shown the whole land of Israel after separating from Lot. Ofra, now a large and flourishing community, with a diverse modern orthodox population, was founded in 1974, as the first Jewish community to be built in the hills north of Jerusalem.

In the high altitude of Benjamin region, Ofra is a pearl which lies in a charming and unique natural mountainous landscape, a fertile land on the edge of the desert.

Ofra is an excellent basis for your Jerusalem vacation: a half-hour drive brings you right to the center ofJerusalem and to the Old City. Even closer – the wonderful springs and nature reserve of Wadi Kelt, the Samaria desert and the Jordan Valley. ancient Shilo is only a 10 minutes drive.

In Ofra you can find (among other things …): a large grocery store, meat restaurant, pizzeria, gas station and convenience store, post office, car rental, playgrounds, sports facilities, vineyards, synagogues and an active beit-midrash.
