Introduction to the Area:

Qumran
Qumran was a flourishing Jewish settlement that existed during the Second Temple period. The settlement was inhabited by a men-only community that lived a cooperative life. The complex is made off public buildings, while the community members lived around in about 30 caves and probably also in tents and sukkahs. The complex’s buildings were kept in good condition thanks to the arid climate in the Dead Sea Valley. Qumarn is identified with “Secacah” mentioned in the Bible as one of the six desert cities of the tribe of Judah. Joshua 15 61-62: “In the wilderness, Betharabah, Middin, and Secacah, And Nibshan, and the city of Salt, and Engedi; six cities with their villages”. Today, impressive remains can be seen at the Qumran National park where our hike starts.
