The Yad-Hashmona Country Hotel is settled in the heart of a unique community (Moshav), where local Jewish Israelis and Gentiles share their faith in Yeshua (Jesus) and the Scriptures- the Old and New Testament.
The original Yad Hashmona cooperative village was founded by a group of Christian volunteers who arrived from Finland to pursue their Biblical beliefs and help the Jewish people to establish themselves in their old-new homeland. The settlement was named after eight Jews who were handed over to the Nazis during World War II by Finland. ( “Yad” – Memorial; “Hashmona” – the eight).
The Hotel is located on the peaceful heights of the Judean Hills, only 20 minutes from Jerusalem and less than half an hour drive from the Ben Gurion Airport. Biblical sites such as Emmaus and Kiryat Yearim (site of the Ark of the Covenant) are located close by.
Our Country Hotel is surrounded by beautiful views of the evergreen Judean Hills and the Mediterranean coastal plain. The Hotel’s unique Finnish- Scandinavian flavor, combined with the biblical land of Israel, promises you an unforgettable stay in the Holy Land! The Yad Hashmona Country Hotel and our community, welcome you to stay with us!
