The International Meeting Center “Beit Ben Yehuda” opened its doors to guests from all over the world in 2004. It consists of two main buildings: a new construction, housing most of the facilities, and the adjacent historical family home of Eliezer Ben Yehuda, who recreated modern Hebrew (Ivrith) , the everyday language of Israel.
The complex is associated with Aktion Sühnezeichen Friedensdienste (ASF), a volunteer organization based in Germany.
The International Meeting Center provides a welcoming forum for intercultural meetings between Israelis and people from all over the world. It offers a variety of seminars, programs, language courses and accommodation for all age groups, families or individual guests.

They also deal with the conflict in the Middle East, as well as German-Israeli and Christian-Jewish relations in the past and at present.
