The Givatayim Observatory is the oldest observatory in Israel, and serves as the main base for amateur astronomers in Israel. The observatory holds a weekly public tour every Thursday at 19:30. The tour includes a basic lecture, an observation through our telescopes, and a planetarium show. These tours are guided in Hebrew, but events in English are also available for groups (contact our office for more information).
