The Center for Land of Israel Studies

The Bert Bornblum Center for Land of Israel Studies

In August 2015, after restoration and preservation activities, and adaptation to the college’s study needs, the Center for Land of Israel Studies was opened at the site of the historic Tsemakh Railway Station.

The Council for Conservation of Heritage Sites in Israel and the Kinneret College on the Sea of Galilee led the rehabilitation of the station and its conversion into a unique active academic historical site, which accommodates academic and non-academic studies, as well as a visitors’ center for the general public, which is due to open in the near future.
