Living in the Galilee

The Galilee region of Israel is developing and flourishing. Many communities are currently expanding their populations and provide a quality of life unmatched in the rest of Israel. The cultural and leisure opportunities in the Galilee are highly developed, and the region’s high quality education system offers many different options. The Park’s management team is connected with all the local councils and organizations involved in helping families to relocate to the Galilee, and can provide assistance for people who move to the area, helping to ease the transition for the whole family.

Living and working in Galilee, you will find a wonderful base for creativity and innovation, leisure opportunities and a community-based cultural life.

Relocating to The Galilee

Companies choosing to move to the Galilee receive not only a range of incentives and benefits, but also the assistance of the Park management team and of governmental and associated agencies, which are engaged in promoting the development of the Galilee region and its minority populations. Such assistance includes providing information about relevant incentives and assistance in obtaining them, help in recruiting and training qualified employees, advice on finding relevant service providers, and assistance in helping to relocate and integrate families.
