The bedouin tribes, scattered throughout the Negev and sinai deserts, have undergone radical changes tn recent years as they move from a nomadic to a modern lifestyle. These changes are expressed tn the material culture, such as sources of income, types of housing style of dress, and more. As a result, many traditional bedouin ways of life are disappearing, creating the urgent need to collect, preserve and document this unique culture before it vanishes. The present collection was amassed simultaneously in two separated places: Kibbutz Lahav, and bedouin museum in southern Sinai,set up by Orna and Avner Goren. After the Israeli withdrawal from Sinai in 1979, the two collections were united, creating the museum for bedouin Culture at Joe alon center.
Staff members of the museum – collected, and continue to collect, much ethnographic material, photographing and documenting bedouin ways of life in different parts of the Negev and Sinai, and displaying in the museum a rich collection of bedouin artifacts, which recaptured an almost-extinct way of life. This collection is on permanent display in an impressive building designed by architect Tzvi Lissar of Tel Aviv. The exhibit was designed by David Gal, of the Israel Museum. Orna Goren, an archaeologist, anthropologist, and museologist, served as the first curator.
Tel Arad, northwest of the modern city of Arad in the northern Negev, consists of a lower and an upper city. The lower city was inhabited only in the Early Bronze Age (3150–2200 BCE). At approximately 100 dunams (25 acres) Arad was one of the largest cities of its day in this country, and surrounded by a strong 1,200-meter wall. The city’s streets, plazas, and buildings were meticulously planned, including a reservoir in the lowest part of the city to which surface runoff was channelled.
The upper city was first settled in the Israelite period (1200 BCE). A number of fortresses were built one on top of the other there until the Persian period (fourth century BCE). A highlight of the visit to Arad is the Israelite temple, which included a large outer sacred area, the hechal, and a smaller ‘holy of holies.’ The temple in Arad was a miniature version of Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem. A meter-high, stone monument, painted red, was found on the paved bamah of the holy of holies. An altar was found in the courtyard in front of the hechal. Another famous find at Arad are inscribed potsherds bearing the names of priestly families.
