How a cooking school is going to transform israel’s north through the creation of the Galilee Culinary Institute by JNF

Jewish National Fund-USA is investing in the future development of new communities in the Greater Kiryat Shmona area; this vision includes the Galilee Culinary Institute located on the eastern side of the Galilee.

Why Culinary? The region is ripe for food and agricultural businesses as well as technology centers, including the Beit Asher Food Technology and Innovation Center which is also a Jewish National Fund-USA initiative. Top produce in Israel comes from the north as well as students and research from Tel Hai College and the Migal Galilee Research Institute. The area also is home to over 80 different ethnicities which provides a unique culinary learning opportunity for our students. With affordable living, tax incentives and new businesses focused around food, agriculture and technology, the region is now a focal point for investment from other major industry players such as OurCrowd, Tnuva, Tempo and others turning the area into a Culinary and Food Capital of Israel (and the world). No longer will students and top professionals need to leave the north in order to make a living.
