21st-century Zionism on the shores of the Sea of Galilee
December 2, 2022
(JNS) — The Start-Up Nation is returning to its agricultural roots.
The country once famed for Jaffa oranges and Jordan Valley dates, and later cherry tomatoes, is coming full circle, with century-old agricultural know-how meeting 21st-century high-tech.
That, at least, is the impression one gets at the pristine offices of the Kinneret Innovation Center, which is emerging as a leading Israeli tech hub for agriculture, water and sustainability. Situated in an area known more for Christian tourism and date trees, this off-grid location is the latest hot spot for Israeli high-tech.
