Zfat Many names for the fantastic Galilee's Capital - Zfat (also spelled Safed, Zefat, Tsfat, Zfat, Safad, Safes, Safet, Tzfat, etc... but most commonly written by Israelis as Zfat). A city in the North District in Israel. At the end of 2003 the city had a total population of 26,600 residents. Safed is regarded one of the Four Holy Cities in Judaism along with Jerusalem, Tiberias and Hebron, and is a center for the Kabbalah, an esoteric form of Jewish mysticism. It is also famous as a health and holiday resort with pleasant summers and snowy winters with a lot of greenery thanks to its high altitude of more than 900 meters and high precipitation.

Tiberias Tiberias is a town on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee. It was was built at about AD 20 by Herod Antipas in honor of the emperor Tiberius. During Herod's time, the Jews refused to settle there; the presence of a cemetery rendered the site ritually unclean. However, Antipas forcibly settled people there from rural Galilee in order to populate his new capital. The Sanhedrin, the Jewish court, fled to Tiberias. It was in fact its final meeting place before its disbandment. Following the expulsion of all Jews from Jerusalem after 135, Tiberias and its neighbor Sepphoris became the major centers of Jewish culture. The Mishnah, which grew into the Jerusalem Talmud, may have begun to have been written here.

Ashdod The most important of the five cities of the Philistines - Ekron, Gaza, Ashkelon and Gath - Ashdod housed the Temple of the Philistines dedicated to the idol, Dagan. It was to Ashdod that the Philistines transported the Ark of the Covenant in the Era of the Judges and it brought them nothing but trouble [1 Samuel 5:1-6]. The modern city of Ashdod was built in 1966 on the Nahal Lahish estuary of the Mediterranian Sea, 35 km from Tel Aviv, and 25 km from Ashkelon. Ashdod's comfortable climate and geographical location make it one of Israel's most attractive cities, that attract many new immigrants.

Beit El Bethel is a Biblical city in ancient Israel, about 10 miles north of Jerusalem in Samaria (Northern West Bank). Bethel has been identified by some with the ruins surrounding the Palestinian village of Beitin and by others with the modern Israeli settlement of Beit El. It is frequently associated with the patriarchs Abraham and Jacob. Abraham made a sanctuary in the area, giving the place the name Bethel, the city called Luz formerly. It is where Jacob is said to have had his dream of a ladder ascending to heaven. Thereupon Jacob set upright the stone which had served as his pillow, poured oil on it, and named it Bethel 'House of God'.

Gush Katif References to Jewish Connections to Gaza By Anthony David Marks In the minds of some there is confusion or lack of knowledge of the Jewish biblical and modern historical connections to the Gaza Strip area. They are more substantial than most realize. The following references should elucidate the subject. 1. Genesis 15 - The area in which Gaza is located was included as part of Abraham's inheritance. 2. Numbers 34:2-6 - The Bible details precisely the northern, southern, eastern and western borders of ancient Israel. Readers should note that in every reference there is a body of water - the Mediterranean Sea, a lake, a river and a wadi (a dry river bed that flows only after an infrequent heavy rain). Bodies of water are permanent markers in most cases. In Numbers 34:5 with reference to the southern border it states: From Azmon the boundary shall turn towards the Wadi of Egypt (near el-Arish) and terminate at the sea (Mediterranean). This would include the entire present-day Gaza Strip and additional land in the Sinai. 3. Joshua 13:2 - The Lord said to Joshua: This is the territory that remains to be conquered: all the districts of the Philistines, those of the Gerurites, from the Shihon, which is close to Egypt, to the territory of Ekron in the north, are accounted. Canaanite, namely those of the five lords of the Philistines - the Gazities (Gaza), the Ashdodites (Ashdod) etcS. 4. Joshua 15:47 - Most Biblical commentators hold that the modern day Gaza Strip was within the territory allotted to the tribe of Judah. 5. Consider in Joshua Chapter 15: This was the portion of the tribe of Judea (15:20); Ekron, with its dependencies and villages (15:45); Ekron, westward, all the towns in the vicinity and Ashdod, with their villages (15:46); Ashdod, its dependencies and its villages, Gaza, its dependencies and its villages, all the way to the Wadi of Egypt and the edge of the Mediterranean Sea (15:47). 6. Judges 1:18 - And Israel captured Gaza and its territory, Ashkelon and its territory, and Ekron and its territory. 7. Kings 5:1 - Solomon's rule extended over all the kingdoms from the Euphrates to the land of the Philistines and the boundary of Egypt (Wadi of Egypt or to el-Arish). 8. Ezekiel 47:19-20 - 47:19 The southern limit shall run: A line from Tamar to the waters of Meriboth-kadesh, along the Wadi (of Egypt and ) the Great Sea (Mediterranean). That is the southern limit.

Haifa Haifa is the the third-largest city in Israel, with a population of about 267,800. Haifa is first mentioned in Talmudic literature around the 3rd century CE, as a small town near Shikmona, the main Jewish town in the area at that time. It is noted by Jews for the Cave of Elijah and the historic Jewish town of Shikmonah at the foot of Mount Carmel. On the top of the mountain is the Muchraka, the place where Elijah burned the emissaries of Baal. The Bahá'í World Centre is a site of worship and administration for members of the Bahá'í Faith, as well as the most visited tourist attraction. A 19th century monastery, Stella Maris, was built at Carmel's head. Haifa is the site of two universities, the University of Haifa and the Technion. Haifa was a primary initial target of Hezbollah rockets fired from Lebanon in 2006.

Hevron Abraham pitched his tent in Hevron (Gen.13:18) at the oaks of Mamre. It is where he met the 3 messengers of G-D, and where he interceded for Sodom and Gomorrah. In the division of the Promised Land the town went to the tribe of Judah and was given to Caleb (Josh.14:13) It was one of the cities of refuge (Josh.20:7) and assigned to the sons of Aaron (Josh.20:7) King David made Hevron his capital for 7 years and 6 months (2 Sam. 5:1-5). Absalom, David's rebellious son, made Hevron the center of his revolt (2 Sam. 15:7) The tombs of the Patriarchs are located here in a building that is 1000's of years old.

Jordan RiverThe Jordan River is Israel’s only large flowing body of water. It begins in the north at Mount Hermon and flows south through Lake Huleh (now drained), the Sea of Galilee, and the tropical Jordan valley, terminating at the Dead Sea. The name, Jordan, means "flowing downward". After Moses’ death, Joshua assumed leadership of the Israelites and prepared them to cross the Jordan. When the priests carrying the Ark of Covenant stepped into the water, God miraculously blocked the flow of the river at Adam, near the Jabbok-Wadi Fari’a crossing, allowing all the people to pass through it on dry ground (Joshua 3). The prophet Elisha commanded the Syrian general, Naaman, to wash in the Jordan River seven times to be healed of his leprosy. At first, Naaman rejected this directive, considering it foolish. When he finally obeyed, God healed him (2 Kgs 5:10-14). Elisha performed another miracle in the Jordan, causing an iron ax head to float after it had fallen from its handle into the water (2 Kgs 6:1-7). John the Baptist came out of the wilderness and began preaching and baptizing in the Jordan River area. .

Joseph's Tomb Muslim mobs burned and destroyed Joseph's tomb, then danced in celebration. Over 16 synagogues were desecrated on the West-Bank, literally all the synagogues in Judea. "With hatchet and hammer they banged away, smashing all the carved woodwork. They set your sanctuary on fire, tore down and profaned the abode of your name. They said to themselves, "We will oppress them completely." They have burned down all God's meeting-places in the land." (Tehillim 74:6-8)

Judean Hills Judea means "Praise" in Hebrew, and is also a term used for the mountainous southern part of Israel, an area that is today divided between Israel and what is now called theWest Bank - The area was the site of the ancient Kingdom of Judah and the later Kingdom of Judea, a client-kingdom of the Roman Empire. Judea is a mountainous and arid region, that varies greatly in height, rising to an altitude of 1,020 m in the south at Mount Hebron, 30 kilometers southwest of Jerusalem, and descending to as much as 400 m below sea level in the east of the region. Major cities in the region include Jerusalem, Beitar Illit, Bethlehem, Efrat, Gush Etzion, Jericho and Hebron.

Lag b'OmerLag B'Omer - (The word "Lag" is not really a word; it is the number 33 in Hebrew. It is the letters Lamed and Gimel).The numerical equivalent of the Hebrew letter "lamed" is thirty. Similarly, the numerical equivalent of the letter "gimel" is three. Together, they add up to 33. So Lag B'Omer is the 33rd day of S'firat Ha'Omer (the counting of the Omer). According to the Torah (Vayikra, Parshat Emor, 23:15-16), we are obligated to count the days from the second night of Pesach to the day before Shavuot, seven full weeks. This period is known as the Counting of the Omer. Hashem commands the Jews that on the fiftieth day of counting the Omer we must celebrate the Yom Tov of Shavuot. In the Bait Hamikdash the Kohanim would offer the Shtay Halechem (two loaves) baked from the first wheat of the new harvest. After the destruction of the Bait Hamikdash, the practice of bringing the Korban Omer was discontinued but Jews continued to "count the Omer period," a custom which has continued throughout the ages.

MediterranianThe Mediterranean Sea is a part of the Atlantic Ocean almost completely enclosed by land: on the north by Europe, on the south by Africa, and on the east by Asia. The Mediterranean Sea is connected to the Atlantic Ocean by the Strait of Gibraltar on the west and to the Sea of Marmara and Black Sea, by the Dardanelles and the Bosporus respectively, on the east. The man-made Suez-Canal in the south-east connects the Mediterranean Sea with the Red Sea. Being nearly landlocked strongly affects the Mediterranean Sea's properties; for instance, tides are very limited as a result of the narrow connection with the ocean. The Mediterranean climate is generally one of wet winters and hot, dry summers. Special crops of the region are olives, grapes, oranges and tangerines

Nazareth A Hebrew inscription found in Caesarea, dating to the late 3rd or early 4th century, mentions Nazareth as one of the places in which the priestly divisions were residing after the Great Jewish Revolt. Accordingly, there is some evidence that Nazareth was a Jewish settlement both before and after the First Jewish Revolt in AD 70. According to the Christian Bible, Nazareth was the home of Joseph and Mary and the site of the Annunciation, when Mary was told that she would bear the son of God. Nazareth is also assumed to be where Jesus grew up from his infancy to manhood. Nazareth is situated in the ridges of the Nazareth Mountains, on the steep slope of a hill, about 31 km from the Sea of Galilee and about 9 km west from Mount Tabor, at an elevation of 1150 feet (350 m). The modern city lies lower down upon the hill than the ancient one.

These are the hills where David watched his father's sheep.... These are the hills where the Patriarchs lived... These are the hills surrounding Hevron (Hebron) where the Patriarchs and the Matriarchs are buried....on land which the Torah clearly says that Avraham purchased and for which he was given a deed. Now these hills are covered with Palestinian so called "Refugee Camps". What's wrong with this picture?

Sderot Sderot is situated in the NW Negev desert, 72 km from Tel-Aviv, 20 from Ashqelon and 40 from Be'er Sheva. Sderot is mentioned in the Bible at the period of King Solomon (Kings A:6:9).Its name comes from the Bible and means planks (rows) of cedars. Today it has a population of over 19,900. Sderot lies only 1 kilometer from the Gaza Strip. Since the beginning of the al-Aqsa Intifada in October 2000, the city has been frequently bombed by Hamas and Islamic Jihad militants using ballistic rockets known as "Qassam rockets". While very inaccurate, these attacks have resulted in several deaths and injuries, as well as in psychologic distress among the residents and in negative immigration from the city. The Israeli government has installed a "Red Dawn" alarm system in an attempt to alert Israelis to possible shellings. Hundreds of Qassam rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip since Israel's disengagement from Gaza in September 2005.

Shilo Shiloh is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as a city and as denoting a person. It was the assembly place for the people of Israel at the sanctuary containing the ark of the covenant until it was taken by the Philistines. According to the Book of Joshua 18:1, it was at Shiloh that the "whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled...and set up the tabernacle of the congregation...", being the tent which housed the ark. Later on, the portable tent seems to have been enclosed within a compound or replaced with a standing structure with "doors" (1 Samuel 3:15) a precursor to the Temple, that survived until the time of Samuel. At Shiloh Samuel was raised by the priest Eli and later himself served as priest there. When the Israelites were defeated at the battle of Aphek, their Philistine foes (who already had captured the ark of the covenant) apparently destroyed the shrine (1 Samuel 4). Despite the shameful defeat, Shiloh was revived, and an important prophet lived there - Ahijah HaShiloni. In 1979 Israel claimed the village as an Israeli settlement, and named it "Shilo". Shiloh as a person The term "Shiloh" occurs also in Gen. 49:10 in a phrase translated in the KJV as "(..) until Shiloh comes; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be." This has led to one interpretation that "Shiloh" also refers to a person and is by Christians generally understood as denoting the Messiah, "the peaceful one," as the word signifies. Shilo today is a Jewish village in Samaria (Northern West Bank), located 45 km north of Jerusalem on Route #60. About 1200 people live in Shilo, with about another 700 people living within its municipal boundaries. In January 1978, a modern community was established adjacent to the ancient biblical site. The village is administrated by the Mateh Binyamin Regional Council. In 2006, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert noted that Shilo might be one of the settlements which would be pulled out of the West Bank. He claimed that its residents would have to choose whether to remain citzens of Israel, or live under foreign rule.

Valley of Elah Not far from Beit Shemesh, spreading between the site of ancient Azekah and modern Kfar Zecharia, is the Valley of Elah where David slew the mighty Goliath. Named for the elah (terebinth) trees which grow on the surrounding mountains, this is where King Saul and the men of Israel gathered and set up their battle lines against the Philistine invaders (Shmuel I, 17:2) and achieved victory through David's slingshot.

Jericho20View~0.jpg
View of Jericho28 viewsView from the northwest looking southeast. The long brown mound of dirt - in the center of the photo - stretching from right to left is Tell es-Sultan (Old Testament Jericho). Note its position in the green oasis. One of the powerful springs that feed the oasis of Jericho is located just on the opposite (east) side of the mound. The tell is about 10 acres in size - which implies about 1,500 people could live within its walls. The mud brick buildings in the foreground are remnants of a Palestinian Refuge camp - now destroyed. On the horizon the pink Mountains of Moab in Jordan are visible, and just below them is the Dead Sea.

Juden Stern37 viewsThis yellow badge, also referred to as a Jewish badge, was a mandatory mark or a piece of cloth of specific geometric shape, worn on the outer garment in order to distinguish a Jew in public. The oldest reference to using mandatory articles of clothing to identify and distinguish Jews from the rest of society was in 807 CE. In this year, Abbassid caliph Haroun al-Raschid ordered all Jews to wear a yellow belt and a tall, cone-like hat. But it was in 1215 that the Fourth Lateran Council, presided over by Pope Innocent III, made its infamous decree. Canon 68 declared: "Jews and Saracens [Muslims] of both sexes in every Christian province and at all times shall be marked off in the eyes of the public from other peoples through the character of their dress." This Council represented all of Christendom and thus this decree was to be enforced throughout all of the Christian countries.
