"Avnei Derech" is for everyone. There will also be Pagans, Bedouins, Christians, seculars, and hopefully even more. We all share love and connection to the land regardless of the spiritual path.

How do you decide on the ticket price?
We believe in sustainability and are striving and working hard for the price to be as low as possible.
The responsibility for the event is divided between a large number of people who work towards the event in a balanced and sustainable way. We have an awesome and wide circle of teachers, helpers and other partners who give their time and energy to the event in the form of actions and not through a financial contribution.
In addition, it is important for us that the event will be sustainable economically and stand on its own without depending on donations or funds.
