From the Air
Kiriath Jearim occupies the hill in
the center. Behind it is the Israeli Arab village of Abu Gosh, and
the hill to the right is occupied by Moshav Yad HaShmonah. Today's
Highway 1 passes near the site, as did a major route in ancient times.
This route was the way the Danites traveled when they migrated from
their territory on the coast to the north. They camped near
Kiriath Jearim at "Mahane Dan" (camp of Dan).
