When Gali and Kobi Kadosh came to Kibbutz Matzuva they brought with them a new spirit; a spirit of achievement, entrepreneurship and enthusiasm. This spirit is very evident when you arrive at Khan HaRuach Haglilit, a travelers Inn for outdoor lodging, consisting of accommodations converted from chicken coops and old buildings, lined with inviting colorful rugs.
Indeed, a unique spirit dwells here. It is the spirit of the Galilee wind; it blows in from the West, glides along the Northern coastline, caresses Banana, Litchi and Avocado groves and continues onwards towards the Galilee ridges. On its way it playfully pats and vigorously turns the huge Weather-vanes placed by Gali and Kobi in every corner of the Khan. Weather-vanes are a wonderful thing; one can look at them spinning on their poles, and suck energy and gusts of joy and gaiety out of them.
But, in the end, the Khan’s spirit is the spirit of Gali and Kobi, who toiled and created here a place of special character. Visitors arrive, put their backpacks down and prepare for their stay. Outside there are showers and lavatories.
These extensive walls with their undefined room space have seen it all; there were workshops dealing with wine, sculpting in stone and drumming circles. Weathervanes were built here by hundreds of guests, and organizational and company forging days were conducted here; among sleeping bags love flourished and friendships were built.
Gali and Kobi are still constructing the place; adding, designing and expanding. Guest can come here to participate in unique art workshops, laugh at the laughter workshop, learn belly dancing or listen to world music and create Mandalas from natural elements. In the summer guests can splash in the Kibbutz pool, for an additional fee, and in winter they can travel along the Kziv and Sarach Rivers, that border the Kibbutz from the North and the South.
