Zomet Experience


How does the metal detector at the Kotel work? How do doctors write their notes on Shabbat? How does a Shabbat elevator work? How does a Shabbat wheelchair work?

Come to the “Halachic Science Center” and find out how rabbis and engineers solve techno-halachic problems.

At the Zomet Visitors Center you can ask questions, learn, understand and enjoy. Best of all the exhibits are interactive!

About Zomet:Zomet Logo

Zomet began to focus on the crossroads of Jewish Law and Modern Life in 1976. Today the Institute is well known for its’ success in merging Torah and Modern Life. The visitors center opened to the (English) public in 2015.

Zomet is located in Alon Shvut and there is plenty of parking and a nice park nearby for younger kids to play in.

Make sure to check out the innovative products that Zomet Sells. I use their Shabbat Lamp (OrLi) and their traveling electric shabbat candles.
