Tel Dan and the Kinneret Sources

by Rabbi Mendel Weinbach zt'l

In a year with little rainfall one of the main concerns of the Israeli public is the water level of Lake Kinneret.

One of the main sources for this major reservoir is the spring called Tel Dan, which is located at the base of Mount Hermon. To its west is the Hatzbani River and to its east is the Banias River, which together with the Tel Dan spring feed the Kinneret.

The name Tel Dan refers to the hill upon which once stood the city of Dan.
