Levona Grove is not only a beautiful setting where fruit trees of different species from all over the world grow. It is also a memorial to the fascinating story of the Lishanski family, which dates back to the early 20th century and Nili, the famous Jewish espionage network that helped the British in the struggle against the Ottoman Empire
