Dead Sea Works continued its annual tradition of hosting thousands of visitors during Passover, at a big event named 'Yamba Melach' (‘Tons of salt’) — a thrilling and unforgettable experience at the Dead Sea.
The event, lasting for six days, allowed many families to come and enjoy a wide range of activities in the area, including handicraft workshops and learning activities.
The main attraction was a fascinating tour at the Dead Sea Works plant. Many visitors also enjoyed interacting with actors playing the historical figures of Herzl, Ben-Gurion and others, who were unfrozen from the past to tell the extraordinary story of the Dead Sea and the enterprises that have been established in the region.
Children also enjoyed arts and crafts, including a salt shaker painting and decorating workshop, as well as a workshop for making clay vessels from local materials. A huge glass wall provided a magnificent view of the production plant, combined with information on the industry’s activities, its products and the Dead Sea region. Movies and archive photographs were also shown, providing fascinating stories about the establishment of Dead Sea Works in this remote part of the country.
Following the success of 'Yamba Melach' (‘Tons of salt’), we hope that many more visitors will come join us for events during future holidays, as we will continue to open our doors to the public, to tell the important story of the Dead Sea Works.
