In the times of King Solomon, mighty cedar trees of Lebanon were sent by Hiram "as rafts on the sea" to the ancient port of Jaffe, to be used in the building of the Temple in Jerusalem. It was deemed a great merit to Hiram, Solomon's non Jewish friend and ally, who bestowed these trees for such a holy purpose. Today you can share in the special merit of planting trees throughout all of Israel.
If you're looking to find this lovely boardwalk near Jaffe port, ask the locals for the "ta-ye-let," which is Hebrew for "promenade." The Jaffe Promenade runs 14 km along the beach and by foot or by bicycle, it's a fun day's activity.
