Places along the way

 
  • Upper Galilee
  • Jordan river
  • Golan Heights
    The Golan Heights forms a rocky plateau that overlooks southern Syria. The plateau has an average altitude of 1,000 meters (3,300 ft), an area totaling 1,800 square kilometers (690 sq mi), and straddles the boundary between Syria and Israel. Elevations range from 2,814 meters (9,232 ft) in the north at Mount Hermon, to below sea level along the Sea of Galilee and the Yarmuk River in the south. The region attracts three million tourists a year and supplies Israel with one-third of its water. It is a must visit location due to its beautiful landscape and magnificent 360 degrees overlooks.
  • Capernaum
    Though no longer a functioning town, Capernaum's importance in modern times is based on its rich history in antiquity and its multiple mentioning in the New Testament. Most notably, Capernaum is believed to have been Jesus' home and the center of his ministry after leaving his birth town of Nazareth. Reference to Capernaum as Jesus' home and the place where He performed many of His miracles is made in the Gospel of Matthew, where it is said that Jesus was approached by a Roman officer who asked Him to heal his servant when the latter fell ill. Jesus' ability to cure the feverish servant serves, to this day, as a reminder of His ability to work miracles. In the Gospel of Luke too, the town of Capernaum is mentioned several times with regard to Jesus prophetic abilities. According to Luke, in the town of Capernaum Jesus healed a man who was possessed by the devil, as well as curing Peter's sickly mother in law.
  • Sea of Galilee
    Located in the northeastern region of Israel and getting its water supply from the Jordan River that runs through it, the Sea of Galilee (known as Yam Kinneret in Hebrew) is Israel's largest freshwater lake. The Sea of Galilee , which is technically a lake referred to as a sea merely for historical reasons, has gained geological recognition for being the lowest freshwater lake in the world (lying some 200 meters below sea level).Renowned for being the beautiful waterfront before which Jesus performed his miracles, the Sea of Galilee has also been acknowledged in the New Testament as a lush and bountiful giver of life; a rich source of fish stock for the Israelites. To this day, the Sea of Galilee supplies Israeli fishermen in the town of Tiberius with enough freshwater fish to be sold commercially. For all its beauty and splendor and for the rich history that it harbors, the Sea of Galilee is a sight not to be missed by anyone embarking on a tour to the Holy Land.
  • Tiberius
    Tiberius was Roman Emperor from 14 AD to 37 AD. Tiberius was by birth a Claudian, son of Tiberius Claudius Nero and Livia Drusilla. His mother divorced Nero and married Augustus in 39 BC, making him a step-son of Octavian. Tiberius would later marry Augustus' daughter Julia the Elder (from his marriage to Scribonia) and even later be adopted by Augustus, by which act he officially became a Julian, bearing the name Tiberius Julius Caesar. The subsequent emperors after Tiberius would continue this blended dynasty of both families for the next forty years; historians have named it the Julio-Claudian dynasty. In relations to the other emperors of this dynasty, Tiberius was the stepson of Augustus, great-uncle of Caligula, paternal uncle of Claudius, and great-great uncle of Nero. Tiberius was one of Rome's greatest generals, conquering PannoniaDalmatiaRaetia, and temporarily Germania; laying the foundations for the northern frontier. But he came to be remembered as a dark, reclusive, and sombre ruler who never really desired to be emperor; Pliny the Elder called him tristissimus hominum, "the gloomiest of men". After the death of Tiberius’ son Drusus Julius Caesar in 23 he became more reclusive and aloof. In 26, against better judgement, Tiberius exiled himself from Rome and left administration largely in the hands of his unscrupulous Praetorian Prefects Lucius Aelius Sejanus and Quintus Naevius Sutorius MacroCaligula, Tiberius' grand-nephew and adopted grandson, succeeded the emperor upon his death.
  • Yardenit – baptism site
    Yardenit is the unique and registered site of baptism for Christian pilgrims, at the place where the Jordan River flows out of the Sea of Galilee and into the Dead Sea. Yardenit is a crossroad for many pilgrims, one among other holy places around the Sea of Galilee, such as CapernaumTabgha and the Mount of Beatitudes. Every year, over half a million tourists from all over the world visit the site. The baptismal site is located on the banks of the Jordan River between magnificent eucalyptus trees and the natural river flora. It is an ideal spot for recollection in serenity and tranquility. Comfortable and adequate facilities are available for religious ceremonies on the banks of the Jordan River. The visit at Yardenit is unique and the most impressive experience for every guest.
  • Gilboa Mt.
    Mount Gilboa is a ridge above the Jezreel Valley in northern Israel. The formation extends from southeast to northwest, bordering the highlands of the West Bank and the Beit She'an valley. The Green Line between Israel and the West Bank runs south and west of the ridge. The Gilboa range is also the setting in the Books of Samuel portraying Saul, Jonathan and David.
  • Tel beth shea'n
    Beit She'an is a city in the North District of Israel which has played an important role historically due to its geographical location at the junction of the Jordan River Valley and Jezreel Valley. It has also played an important role in modern times, acting as the regional center for the numerous villages in the Beit She'an Valley Regional Council.
  • Jerusalem
    Jerusalem the capital of Israel and one of the oldest cities in the world is located in the Judean Mountains, between the Mediterranean Sea and the northern edge of the Dead Sea. If the area and population of East Jerusalem is included, it is Israel's largest city in both population and area, with a population of 763,800 residents over an area of 125.1 km2 (48.3 sq mi). Jerusalem is also a holy city to the three major "Abraham" religionsJudaismChristianity and Islam. During its long history, Jerusalem has been destroyed twice, besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times, and captured and recaptured 44 times. The oldest part of the city was settled in the 4th millennium BCE. In 1538, walls were built around Jerusalem under Suleiman the Magnificent. Today those walls define the Old City, which has been traditionally divided into four quarters known since the early 19th century as the ArmenianChristianJewish, and Muslim Quarters. The Old City became a World Heritage site in 1981, and is a must visit destination to all travelers in Israel.
  • Masada
    One of the most popular tourist destinations in Israel is Masada, the ancient fortress overlooking the Dead Sea. Its unique geographical formation, challenging hike, and tragic story combine to make Masada a can't-miss stop. Masada was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001. Herod the Great, the Roman-appointed King of the Jews, originally fortified Masada as a place of refuge for himself in case of a revolt. The fortress sits atop a plateau, and the steep cliffs and narrow footpaths provide a natural defense, which Herod saw as a distinct advantage, though he still added his own fortifications. In 66 AD, at the beginning of the Great Revolt, a group of Jews conquered the fort from the Romans. Following the destruction of the Holy Temple in 70 AD, the population swelled as Jews fleeing the exile and persecution in Jerusalem came to join their fellow refugees on Masada. The Jews modified the fortress to fit their religious needs, constructing synagogues and mikvaot (ritual baths), the remains of which can still be seen today. After an initial failed attempt by the Romans to breach Masada, they laid siege to the Jews and began constructing a rampart. After three months of siege, the Romans successfully penetrated the fortress with a battering ram. However, instead of taking the Jews slaves as they had planned, the Romans found that all 960 Jews - including women and children - had died, apparently victims of mass suicide. Two women and five children managed to survive both the suicides and the Roman invasion, and later told their story to the famous historian, Flavius Josephus. Josephus' account is the only written evidence of the story of Masada, since it is never mentioned in the Talmud or other rabbinic writings. According to Josephus, Eliezer Ben Yair, the group's leader, declared that death was preferable to enslavement and forced prostitution by the Romans. He also ordered that everything be destroyed so the Romans would not be able to benefit from it - except the food reserves, which they left untouched to prove that the Jews chose this end, and they were not forced into suicide because of starvation. Suicide is forbidden in Jewish law, so according to the legend, the men killed their families, then drew lots to kill each other, leaving only one man to commit suicide. Pieces of pottery with names inscribed on them have been uncovered, lending credence to the lottery theory.
  • The Dead Sea
    No tour to the Holy Land would be complete without a visit to the Dead Sea. Famous for its superlatives - lowest, saltiest, harshest, - the Dead Sea also claims a fascinating history, reaching back to the times of Abraham. A visit to the Dead Sea would be worth it just for the chance to experience the well-known “floating effect,” to douse yourself with the therapeutic mud, and to gaze upon the stunning vistas, but the impact of your visit increases tenfold when you bring with you the knowledge of its past.
