Israel – The Holy Land
Israel is truly the ‘Land of Milk and Honey! Combining the utterly ancient of human civilization with the hyper-modern innovations in global technology, Israel is a land bound to enchant. Home to half the world’s diverse Jewry, all the linguistic, cultural and culinary corners of the world have shaped a modern, cosmopolitan land with a distinctly Jewish soul. The Seven Spices meet chopped liver in an international mix of traditional religious fare and foreign fusion imports.
Israel’s geography, like its people, is diverse. With the towns of Haifa and hip and happening Tel Aviv at the easternmost reaches of the Mediterranean Sea or the sun-kissed resort town of Eilat on the Red Sea, the arid expanses of the Negev Desert, the lush greenery of the Judean Hills, to the ancient cities of literal biblical proportions, Israel does not cease to impress with its varying natural wonders and goliath contributions to human culture.
Jerusalem – City of Infinite Beauty
Without doubt, Jerusalem is the epitome of the Jewish experience ever since King David’s naming of the city as the capital of the united Kingdom of Israel, 3,000 years ago. A place of mystique and veneration, the hallowed Western Wall of the Holy Temple is laden with spiritual history as the holiest site in Judaism.
Beyond the ancient walls, modern Jerusalem has sprouted to become the political heart of the state of Israel. Atop the hills of the neighborhood of Givat Ram, the Israeli parliament (the Knesset) convenes on a regular basis. In close range is the national Museum of Israel with its famous monument, The Shrine of the Book which contains the legendary vestiges of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Designed by Israeli-Canadian Moshe Safdie, with mind-blowing architecture on Mount Herzl, the memorial complex of Yad Vashem is the voluminous house of eternal commemoration for victims of the Holocaust. Combining open spaces of remembrance and tribute, Yad Vashem also houses a museum documenting Jewish art and also Jewish resistance in the Warsaw ghetto, as well as remembering the ‘Righteous among the Nations’ – non-Jews who risked life and limb to save Jews during the Holocaust.
Tel Aviv – Modern Heart of Israel
In contrast to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv prides itself on its decidedly modern verve, while also venerating its ancient and more contemporary history leading to Israeli foundation. Known as ‘The White City’, vast swathes of Tel Aviv’s downtown are covered in the stylish hallmarks of the Bauhaus and International styles.
Originating from the ancient port of Jaffa, Tel Aviv was designed as a garden city. The result of rapid immigration and development has turned the coastal city into an economic hub, studded with lofty skyscrapers. In contrast, harking back to days of early settlement, is the modest Ben Gurion House - the Tel Aviv residence of the first Israeli Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion. The house is a testament to the Israeli start-up mentality and chronicles past events in Israeli history that contributed to the foundation of the nation state.
In more recent years, Tel Aviv has earned the cool reputation of being a dynamic party and clubbing destination, developing a 24-hour culture. A casual walk along the famed Bauhaus-inspired Rothschild Boulevard couples cappuccinos by day and the newest club beats by night, in a cultural medley that never sleeps.
