Vacation in Israel

Israel is a destination that is all encompassing with striking contrasts. There are lush green hills as well as arid deserts and a beautiful coastline. It is the holiest place for the followers of Christianity, as well as Judaism. It has archaeological wonders as well as marvelous modern structures. With such a variety to experience, a holiday in Israel can only be unforgettable.

Among the widely visited places in Israel and variety of hotels in Israel, there are some places in Israel that are a most visit: Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Jordon Valley and Masada. Here’s sneak peek at two of the most visited sites – Jerusalem and the Dead Sea

A Dead Sea Holiday 

At more than 400 meters below the sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on the earth and is so called because it can sustain no living organism due to its very high levels of salt. But this very salt has immense healing powers. This is what makes the Dead Sea popular for spa and wellness tourism. Every year this site welcomes thousands of tourists who come here to heal skin ailments and rehabilitation. Float on the salt-rich waters, enjoy a mineral rich mud bath or enjoy the all year round thermo-mineral hot springs on your Dead Sea holiday and discover a rejuvenated self.

Once you have experienced the healing effect of the Dead Sea, you can move on to tour the surrounding area. This would include the rest of Judea Desert which has plenty of oases with wild animal and plant life and is home to sites such as Mt. Sdom, Nachal Darga, the nature reserve at Ein Gedi and the Einot Tsukim reserve.

Jerusalem Day Tour 

You can begin your tour of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives from where you can see a beautiful panoramic view of the Old city as well as New Jerusalem. You can also see the Temple Mount esplanade where it is believed that the heaven meets the earth.

Driving through the Kidron Valley will take you through the biblical holy sites of the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed before he was crucified, King David’s tomb on Mount Zion, the hall of ‘The Last Supper’ nearby, Church of the Holy Sepulcher – the site of the crucifixion and the Western (wailing) Wall. The archaeological excavations in the underground city of David will let you marvel at the ancient city and its geographical importance.

Continue your Jerusalem Day Tour by visiting the Jewish holy sites, beginning with four 16th century Sephardic synagogues. These have been fabulously restored to their original magnificence. Visit the excavated Herodian Mansions and see the lavish homes of Jewish priests 2000 years ago. Each home was built to have an open view of the temple.

From ojalá to insha'Allah

Our third day in Jordan started off more smoothly than the previous day. Our first stop was Bethany Beyond the Jordan. This is thought to be the sight of Jesus’ baptism. The location has been “proven” by numerous historians and religious scholars, but it is not without controversy. That however, isn’t really the point to me. Jordan and the region all around it is steeped in social and religious history, just being within the vicinity of that kind of history is amazing. (Side note–I see that WP has changed the photo display style, if you’d like to read the photo caption just hover over it).

 

After seeing the Jordanian site we walked a bit farther to where you can actually touch the Jordan River. On the opposite side of the river bank is Israel and this location is (according to our guide) where Israel believes Jesus was baptized. So…

I Won’t Write About the Conflict; Or, What I Think Of When I Think Of Israel

Israel is such a lovely country, no need to talk about such things, look at Haifa! we arrange great Haifa tours why not see how Israel is really all about 🙂

Brute Reason

I won’t write about the conflict.

Yes, I know I’m from there. I know I must have Such Interesting Perspectives on that whole…situation.

I know I have friends in the IDF. I know I once strongly considered moving back, and thus getting drafted myself. I know I’ve seen rubble and remains of Qassam rockets and tanks and bomb shelters and graves. What do I think of all this?

Not much, anymore. I’ve gone numb.

I used to write about it, publicly. I had a newspaper column and everything. You can probably guess which perspective I took. My family was so proud, sending the articles to their friends, saying, See, here’s a young person who gets it.

And then I stopped, cold turkey.

I’m not ignorant. I read the news. But the news is so damn different depending on who reports it, and each side can easily counter the other with…

Traveling Israel: Old Jerusalem and the Holy Selpuchre

I feel that Jerusalem tours are agriculture tours. It is one of the most important and beautiful cities in the world, its so special touring there

Two Different Girls

Dateline: Jerusalem 1846

On this Good Friday the Latin priests arrived with their white linen altar-cloth to find that the Greeks had got there first with their silk embroidered cloth. The Catholics demanded to see the Greeks’ firman, their decree from the Sultan in Constantinople, empowering them to place their silk cloth on the altar first. The Greeks demanded to see the Latins’ firman allowing them to remove it. A fight broke out between the priests, who were quickly joined by monks and pilgrims on either side. Soon the whole church was a battlefield. The rival groups of worshippers fought not only with their fists, but with crucifixes, candlesticks, chalices, lamps and incense-burners, and even bits of wood which they tore from the sacred shrines. The fighting continued with knives and pistols smuggled into the Holy Sepulchre by worshippers of either side. By the time the church was cleared by…

There are so many Israel tourist attractions, it can be hard to narrow down what it is you want to accomplish while you are there. With hundreds of areas ripe with history and religious importance, some of the other Israel attractions go unnoticed. It is likely you know exactly what types of biblical places you want to see, so keep in mind a few of these others when you are setting out to plan your trip.

There is an international film festival in Israel. When thinking of what to do in Israel, this is something that should at least make the list. You will be exposed to filmmaking from all over the world and you will find a totally new take on the medium. In addition, you can meet the filmmakers and hear what it is they are doing and trying to accomplish with their works. It definitely is an unforgettable experience.

The Dead Sea area spas are a great hit. Many people plan one of the day excursions to the Dead Sea which gets you in and out of the area so fast you only have time to float for a minute before you will find yourself being pulled back to your hotel. Look into a longer trip here and plan a relaxing day taking part in spa treatments specialized to the area. It is a great way to rejuvenate before the rest of your vacation or your trip home.

Music and food are also very important in Israel. While it doesn’t seem to cross the ocean like Italian or French, the truth is there are some amazingly creative chefs in the area. You can experience food and spices here like never before. There is so much new food to try and even local area wines, you will be shocked. You can pair this with some local area music and have a true Israeli experience, as it is a lovely country full of lovely people. Your appreciation for the culture will expand exponentially as you see what life is really like.
