Ein Tzukim: The Secret of the Dead Sea

This clip (7:50) from popular YouTube channel Sergio & Rhoda in Israel introduces a side of the Dead Sea that is unfamiliar to most.

While most of us associate the Dead Sea with floating atop super-salty waters, being careful not to let even one drop enter our eyes, the banks of the Dead Sea contain surprisingly sweet fresh water, where a prosperous eco-system thrives.

Ein Tzukim (or, as it was originally named, Ein Pashcha) is a beautiful, green and shady oasis containing over 170 fountainheads!

Ein Pashcha teaches us that, like all nature in Israel, you must visit for yourself to know its hidden value.
