Gilgal | A Geographical Mystery Marked with Footprints of Promise
Gilgal, a name that is mentioned 39 times in the Old Testament, is an important biblical destination, yet does not have an exact location. It was once an actual site, and still is—if anyone could pinpoint exactly where the original spot is located—which only deepens the mystery. To make things even more confusing, scholars believe there...

Jaffa
Long considered the oldest seaport in the world, the city of Jaffa is often overlooked as simply the older sister of its larger neighbor Tel Aviv, but it’s much more than that.

Akko (Acre)
Nestled on Israel’s northern coast, just above Tel Aviv, the ancient port city of Acre (or as the locals call it, Akko) is one of the world’s oldest cities and certainly one of the most heavily fortified.

Ephesus / A Hotbed of Early Christianity
Anyone into time travel will want to visit the ancient city of Ephesus. Turn back the clock in the present-day Selcuk, a town near Izmir, in western Turkey.

National Holidays in Israel | Yom HaZikaron (Memorial Day) and Yom Ha’Atzma’ut (Independence Day)
After the return of the Jewish people to their homeland and the rebirth of the State of Israel in 1948, several holidays were added to the Jewish calendar, each commemorating an important aspect of Israel’s history and existence.

Yom HaShoah | Remembrance of the Holocaust
Yom HaShoah is a national memorial day in Israel.

The Observance...

Pesach
The festival of Pesach, known as Passover, holds multiple layers of meaning, particularly in Israel. Within the Jewish faith, Pesach marks the Israelites’ journey from slavery to freedom, unified, as a sovereign nation, after suffering 400 years of harsh slavery under Egyptian rule.
