Don't miss a cultural adventure of a lifetime. Learning about the Circassians and Adyghe culture in Northern Israel adds tot he patchwork of cultures and religions in Israel.

We stopped there by chance, on our way to Nazareth. This is a small place showing the history of a people from North Caucase, , the Circassians, who were massacred/displaced by Tsarist Russia in the beginning of the 20th Century. They show a very inter sting short video, and thereafter the Manager, David, spend one hour talking to us about the Circassians, how they established themselves in Israel, and about their integration in modern Israel. A must see place, out of the beaten path.

We visited Kfar Kama in the historical area by the mosque. Everything is very clean and well preserved. The highlight was the visit to this cultural museum. Our host was David, the manager, who gave us a personal visit with great knowledge and humor about the Circassian culture. Highly recommended.

The museum presents tragic story of Adyga (Circassian) people. expelled from their homeland in 19th century by the Russian Empire. You could see very impressive movie and historical artifacts: clothes, weapons, instruments. Basically, the museum open for groups only! Contact its manager, or the local municipality and ask whether you can visit the place. In 5 minutes walk you can find Chees store "Albrus" with 2 sorts of traditional Circassian cheese - EXTREMELY recommended! You will love bot the cheese and its price!
