Welcome to Lifta spring. One of Jerusalem’s best kept secrets.

Green, water and swimming near the entrance to Jerusalem… if you know where to look.

Great for a hot summer day.

 

Lifta spring is first mentioned in the Bible in the Book of Joshua, as the water of Niphtoach.

15:8 And the border went up by the valley of the son of Hinnom unto the south side of the Jebusite; the same is Jerusalem: and the border went up to the top of the mountain that lieth before the valley of Hinnom westward, which is at the end of the valley of the giants northward.

15:9 And the border was drawn from the top of the hill unto the fountain of the water of Nephtoah, and went out to the cities of mount Ephron; and the border was drawn to Baalah, which is Kiryat Yearim.
