Beer Sheva Wells Become a Lake

Very surprising news about the desert city of Beer Sheva: a new lake, 2nd largest in Israel (after the Kinneret/Sea of Galilee) and the largest artificial lake in Israel, was inaugurated a few days ago during the holiday period of Sukkot/Feast of Tabernacles.  The ancient wells which our fathers Abraham and Isaac dug and re-dug to give water to drink in Beer Sheva — even down to WW1 — have been transformed into recreational lakes and pools.  Israel is a world leader in reclaiming waste water for agriculture and commercial uses. The lake is a major part of the development of the Beer Sheva River Park.
