History
The owner’s vision
Hotel Gilgal is owned by Yakov and Elisheva Damkani, who set out to establish a unique hotel in Tel Aviv. A Hotel with a family spirit and an atmosphere of love and peace, a hotel that will be a cosmopolitan crossroad for tourists and businessmen from around the world who could come and enjoy a peaceful vacation and rub shoulders as they relax, tour the land, pray or study. 

12 large stones Memorial
12 large stones are set at the entrance to Hotel Gilgal as a memorial of the 12 stones that were set near the Jordan River by Joshua in order to commemorate the events that took place at Gilgal, events that are part of the rich history of the people of Israel.
 
"So the name of that place is called Gilgal to this day.” 
The Hotel was built in 2008 and was named Gilgal, which means "Rolled away”, after the place mentioned in the bible, where the Jewish people miraculously crossed the Jordan river just before entering the promised land. The account is told in the book of Joshua 5:9: "Then the LORD said to Joshua, "Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you. So the name of that place is called Gilgal to this day.” The historic site, Gilgal, is located on the east side of Jericho.

Place of unity
Gilgal was where Joshua gathered and united the people before they embarked on their conquest of the Promised Land. Similarly, we strive to make Hotel Gilgal a place of unity for each one of our guests, before they go out to explore the beauty of Israel, learn about its history and culture and meet its people.
History

Family History

Elisheva, of the hotel owners, is of The Conrad Schick’s family, who in the end of the 19th century lived and worked in Jerusalem and has left a deep impression - until today.

Conrad Schick
Born in Bitz, Germany in 1822. His family was poor and Schick was very weak when born. The family’s physician told the mother not to waste too much food on him since he would probably not make it anyway. In spite of this dark prognosis, he grew up and studied in Korntal, married and in the age of 24 moved to Jerusalem.

Jerusalem's city architect
Schick became well-known as Jerusalem's city architect in the 1900-century, an expert of a great number of archaeological projects and an author of hundreds of articles about Palestine as it was still called in is time.

Conrad Schick's Models
He is also remembered as builder of a great number of meticulous models, mainly about the Holy Sepulcher and the Temple Mount or the Haram Al Sharif in Jerusalem. His most important, detailed, and yet almost forgotten model is the replica he build of the Temple Mount.
 
In 1872, Schick became one of the only Westerners ever allowed to investigate the subterranean spaces under the Islamic shrines on the sacred esplanade, and recreated in miniature what he saw above and below ground level. No significant archaeological excavation has ever been carried out at the Mount, known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary, because of the religious sensitivities associated with the site. The areas Schick visited are off-limits to visitors today. That makes his model more than a curiosity. The model can be seen in the Museum of Christ Church in Jerusalem. More about how Conrad Schick's work returned home in this link. Read about the Temple Model in the German language as well.

Beit Tavor
The house he built as his own residence is "Beit Tavor – House Tabor”, at HaNeviim 58 in Jerusalem, the Street of the Prophets - it is said of many that this is one of the most beautiful buildings in all Jerusalem.
