Service Description

This is Judean Hills area – the hills to the West, North and South of Jerusalem. The Judean Hills rise towards Jerusalem from the Mediterranean Coast. Warm days, cooling winds from the Mediterranean and cool nighttime temperature characterize the region which sharply rises from 500 meters elevation, West of Jerusalem. Directly North and South of Jerusalem, elevations reach up to 1,000 meters. The soils are thin Terra Rossa and stony, on a bedrock of limestone. Elevations rise from 600 meters to 850 meters. In the Central Mountains, the higher areas receive snow in the winter. Average winter temperatures are 0-18 0C, whilst summer temperatures can rise from 15 to 30 0C. Further to the West, in the direction of Tel Aviv, here are the rolling hills with deep soils, which are chalky and clay loams. Elevations are higher than the coastal plain, from 150 to 350 meters above sea level and average rainfall is up to 500 mm a year. Winter temperatures are from 5 to 20 0C, whilst those in the summer range from say 18 to 30 0C.
