However, being a holiday, our Kibbutz Friends of Qiryat Shmona planned to visit some of the holy places around Galilee. We started our journey at 6 o’clock in the morning and and by 6 o’clock in the evening we all were at our homes.  Within twelve hours we visited six holy places. They are The Galilee Boat, Tabgha, Mount Tabor, Yardenit, Kursi and The Church of St. Peter’s Primacy.  The Ancient Galilee Boat : The Galilee Boat from the time of Jesus, has been preserved and housed in the museum. In 1986, two brothers from Kibbutz Ginosar discovered the Galilee Boat when a severe drought resulted in the lowering of the waters of the Sea of Galilee.(Hebrew: Yam Kinneret). The boat is 8.2 meters (26.9 ft.) long, 2.3 meters (7.5 ft.) wide and 1.2 meters (3.9 ft.) deep. In February, 2000, fourteen years after its excavation, the boat was moved to its permanent home in a new wing of the Yigal Allon Centre, which is devoted to the story of man in the Galilee.  Tabgha ( The Place of Miracle): The name Tabgha is a distortion of the Greek word Heptapegon, which means ’Seven Springs’. In the past, seven springs met at this point and flowed into the Sea of Galilee. However, today only five streams remain. This is the traditional site of the Miracle of the ‘Loaves and Fishes’ which Jesus performed in order to feed the multitudes who had come to hear Him preach.  Mount Tabor: Mount Tabor is not mentioned by name in the Gospels, but according to tradition it is the ‘high mountain apart’ which Jesus ascended with the apostels Peter, James and John and where He
