Wertheimer's Vision Realized

Stef Wertheimer is a leading Israeli industrialist, who also happens to be an idealist and a man of vision. He established the Tefen industrial park in the heart of the Upper Galilee, with advanced export industry but also careful environmental planning. A few kilometers from Tefen, Wertheimer envisioned a community village for Tefen employees and for others who would choose to build their homes in this remote area.
Kfar Vradim was established in 1984, built on a forested hill in a prefect location.

Kfar Vradim: My Favorite Place

Our friends Maerton and Beth live in Kfar Vradim; visiting them, besides enjoying their hospitality, provides us with an opportunity to relax in this beautiful mountain community. Nestled among forests and groves, Kfar Vradim is a very peaceful place. With lots of vegetation, beautiful houses and picturesque streets, and great views in all directions, a relaxed stroll in the village is a real pleasure. There are several trails just outside the village, notably Norman's Trail, an initiative of one of the residents, with lots of surprises along this trail.

Model for Town Planning

Kfar Vradim is perfectly integrated into its natural environment, using its beautiful location and abundant flora to the best advantage.
The residential neighborhoods were built in a ring around the central public area, which has a small commercial center, a park, public sports facilities and a swimming pool. There is an orthodox synagogue near the central public area. On the wide streets in the center there is an unusual addition: On lamp-posts you can read lines and stanzas from Israeli poems!
