    Accessibility statement

    We want everyone who visits the Ramat Hanadiv website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.

    What are we doing?

    To help us make the Ramat Hanadiv website a positive place for everyone, we've been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.

    The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the Ramat Hanadiv website.

    How are we doing?

    We've worked hard on the Ramat Hanadiv website and believe we've achieved our goal of Level AA accessibility. We monitor the website regularly to maintain this, but if you do find any problems, please get in touch.

    This accessibility statement was generated on 7th August 2014 using the Accessibility Statement Generator.

Visitors Pavilion

The Visitors Pavilion was planned by architect Ada Karmi-Melamede around two perpendicular axes. The landscape axis connects the Memorial Gardens and the Nature Park, while the horizontal axis, in the form of a rounded, green hill, envelopes the entrance plaza to the Gardens. The passage along the hill also permits natural light to enter the building through windows positioned along its entire length.
The meeting point of the two axes is the site of the information centre, as well as a gallery illuminated by natural light that features an exhibition on the subject of sustainability. In the meeting hall, visitors can watch a film about Ramat Hanadiv. The Education Centre serves students and teachers, providing an opportunity for in-depth learning through diverse educational programmes. At the end of the building, close to the Olive Grove Café, an expansive lawn features a children’s playground built from environmentally-friendly materials.
At a ceremony held in the presence of President Shimon Peres, the 2010 Magshim Award of the Council for a Beautiful Israel was given to the Visitors Pavilion. Explaining their decision, the judges noted: “The award is granted to the Visitors Pavilion, a wonderful work of landscape architecture on the southern Carmel with an educational and social mission: for providing a role model for the successful combination of architecture, landscaping, and infrastructures; for the power of modesty; and for the integrated end product, which creates a respectful and appropriate bond between all who enter it and the site, providing a unique visiting experience.”
