I am Adam Waddell, born in the US, made aliyah in 2005, married with three children, a kibbutz member, and a tour guide. I grew up in a mixed-faith family, with an Israeli mother (retired teacher) and an American father (retired Navy chaplain). With a degree in Marine and Environmental Sciences, I have developed a huge interest in ecology and human history. I live on the banks of the Jordan River. I've guided locally and nationally but mostly love to explore and teach about the Jordan Valley and the Sea of Galilee.
