Cableways in Israel

Which cableways exist in Israel? I know Carmelit the underground funiculaire of Haifa and the Massada aerial tramway, the only aerial tramway below sea level. Are there further cableways ( also for material transport only) in Israel? If yes, where? Please post pictures and technical data.

I don't have a full list, but there is cableway in Rosh HaNikra (northern end of the shore), there is a cableway leading to Massada, and many others I probably am not familiar with.
The one in Rosh HaNikra I think is the biggest open cableway in Israel, and the one leading to Massada is probably the most touristy one.

There are at least three others that have not yet been mentioned: Manara Cliffs (I think this is the biggest by far), the Stella Maris cable car in Haifa (this one is overground), and the Hermon ski cable car.

cableways for transport in urban areas are totally stupid
any small problem and the entire line is shut down
they cant be flexible, cant be moved or decreased for non rush hours
they cost so much more than buses to be insured and maintenance
makes no sense to use them

Hermon Ski resort installing this summer a new cablecar with 2,400 passenger capacity
the open-air ski lift will be replaced by closed gondolas

בשנה הבאה יותקן רכבל קרוניות חדש ומקורה לגולשים והמבקרים באתר החרמון
הרכבל החדש בעל הספק העלאת נוסעים רב, כ-2400 איש בשעה, לעומת הספק הרכבל הישן כ- 700 איש בשעה.
מדובר בשדרוג משמעותי לאתר מבחינת טכנולוגית, זמן נסיעה וקיצור התורים לעלייה ברכבל. לקראת התקנת
הרכבל, יבנו 10 עמודים בגובה 7 מטרים מינימום ועד 21 מטרים מקסימום, סך הכל כ-60 מכולות ציוד תגענה לארץ.
