Been to Israel in the summer? Then you've probably spent a balmy evening walking Jerusalem's Old City, floated in the warm waters of the Dead Sea, and downed a cold beer in a bustling outdoor cafe on Dizengoff Street.

But have you ever enjoyed a nighttime concert at a desert amphitheater? Wound your way through Israel's sun-drenched wineries? Pitched a tent just feet from a gaggle of goats?

You can, and throughout August, we'll tell you how. To celebrate summer in Israel, JNF-style, we'll feature stories of some of the country's best kept summer secrets, all #PoweredByJNF.  

Here on the Jewish National Fund blog, and on JNF's Facebook and Instagram pages, you'll meet Israeli boys playing their hearts out at baseball camp and dreaming of making it to the Major Leagues. You'll visit a bucolic family farm with a unique pay-as-you-want model. You'll hear the story of Adam and Alaa, the Jewish and Muslim co-owners of a boutique ice cream shop rumored to be the best in all of Israel. And more.

Ready to get an eyeful of some stunning and surprising sights and out-of-this-world seasonal tastes? Put on your sunglasses and grab the sunscreen. It's time for a month of #JNF #SummerLovin.
