Hamat Gader becomes haredi-friendly

For first time ever, women and men to have separate bathing hours in site's hot springs

History is being made at the hot springs site of Hamat Gader. For the first time ever, women and men will have separate bathing hours until end of August


Since the opening of the Hamat Gader spa and entertainment center 10 years ago, there has been joint male-female bathing in the site’s hot springs.


Recently, travel agents working with the ultra-Orthodox sector turned asked the site to provide separate bathing times for men and women in the haredi community.


Hamat Gader spokeswoman, Orna Ben-Haim, said in response that “the site will be split into wet and dry areas and the dry area will be divided by men and women. Every two hours the bathing time will be switched between the men and women.”


Divided bathing will take place from Sunday to Thursday, while on Friday and Saturday it will be mixed.
