Judaism and Jews

Tours which focus on Jewish sites. Israel is the holiest place in the world for Judaism, and the country of the Jewish nation, the scene of the Biblical events and central events in the life of the key figures in Judaism. In Israel you'll find the four holiest cities to Judaism – Jerusalem, Hebron, Safed and Tiberias. The Temple in Jerusalem was a place of Jewish pilgrimage, and the Western Wall is its only remains, and Mishna and Talmud were written in Galilee. We'll find here many historical synagogues, tombs of Rabbis and Biblical figures, remains of ancient synagogues, impressive modern synagogues, and of course the history of the Jewish nation. 

  • Due to the destruction of the Second Temple, Judaism faced the challenge of adaptation of the religion and its cult to the new circumstances.

  • The Independence war, the formative war of Israel, was a difficult and a bloody war. It's especially true about the area which is between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem (the road to Jerusalem and the Judean mountains on their two sides), and about Jerusalem itself.

  •         The end of the 19th century was marked by the beginning of massive Jewish return to the Land of Israel, and many of the first towns and villages were formed near Tel Aviv of today – Rishon LeZion, Rehovot, Gedera, Mazkeret Batya, Ness Ziona and more.

  • Safed, one of the four holy cities of Judaism, is known as a spiritual and Kaballic center, with beautiful views and remains of a big Crusader center of the Templars. The story of battles over Safed during the War of Independence is one of the most interesting stories of that war.  

  • One of the Biblical tels, recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage Site is Tel Hazor, located in the Hula Valley, and known in early times as "head of all kingdoms".

  • Many Rabbis and Tzadikim (righteous) are buried in Galilee, when every tomb has its own tradition, related to the story of the person buried in it.
