Kemp Mill Sababa
Sababa is the Hebrew slang word for “cool and wonderful!” We want everyone who visits Israel to be inspired, amazed, and to have FUN. “Kemp Mill Sababa” is a great way to refer your friends to your favorite unique and “off the beaten path” places in Israel. If you have visited Israel recently (in the past two years), we want you to list your favorite places and experiences that don’t usually make it into the tour books. Click here to make a recommendation. (It will take you less than 5 minutes!)
