We had a truly wonderful stay in Ka'abiyye Tabbash Hajajre. Though we had originally booked the Tipi Tent we ended up staying in a very quaint converted train car surrounded by fruit trees and which had air conditioning---a must in July and August. Our gracious hosts, Izhar and his wife Irit, of Bukahrain descent, went way beyond all expectation in making us feel welcome, and almost immediately invited us to be their guests at a Bedouin wedding which was to take place that evening in the village a few hundred yards down the hill from the farm. It was a real treat, an absolutely unforgettable experience, during which I learned---and saw with my own eyes---that contrary to what we hear on the news, Jews and Arabs can and do live shoulder to shoulder sharing a common life of mutual respect and genuine friendship.
In the morning our host, Izhar, brought a breakfast tray of organic salad, farm fresh eggs and home made cheeses to our room. And since it was early in the morning and still quite cool---the sun having barely peeked over the horizon---we took it outside and ate under an arbor of vines. Izhar told us to help ourselves to the grapes as they were plentiful. We received his gift heartily and took two perfectly ripened clusters of golden colored grapes with us to have in the car; along with three purple-black figs which were about to fall from a tree near the hen house, and two small pinkish-orange pomegranates which we took from an over-hanging branch of a tree in their Bedouin neighbor's garden.
This large hearted authentic little bohemian farm with its Bedouin neighbors is a rare jewel---a unique find in Israel. We highly recommend it.
