Moshav Tsofar

Moshav Tsofar, founded in 1981, is comprised of some 93 families. Like other farming communities in the Arava it is dependant entirely on advanced agriculture. The homes of Tsofar are located on the west side of the Arava road, while most of its agricultural land lies east of the Jordanian border and continues to be leased from Jordan, in the context of the 1994 Israel-Jordan Peace Treaty.

A large percentage of the moshav's produce is earmarked for export. KKL-JNF, with the support of its Friends worldwide, has reclaimed and prepared land for agricultural crops such as date groves and for building hothouses, where peppers, cherry tomatoes, eggplants, melons and flowers are grown. In reclaiming the land and developing infrastructure for Arava communities like Tsofar, KKL-JNF continues to play a significant role in ensuring the region's future.
