 Midreshet Sde Boker  -  Toegang tot de Negev  -  Reizen in de Negev
Although the Negev is known to be hot, the highlands in its center are a cool surprise. Even in summer the weather here is quite pleasant, for the highlands rise from 450 to 1,000 meters above sea level.
Although in the past most Negev settlement was in the highlands, today the region is very underpopulated. It contains only one city, Dimona, the two small towns of Yeruham and Mitzpe Ramon and a few kibbutzim and moshavim.
The absence of modern civilization is, however, a blessing which has preserved many of the highland's fabulous natural attraction. Among them: three craters, unique flowers like the Yeruham iris and exceptionally beautiful riverbeds, canyons and desert springs.
Besides colossal natural sites, the highlands offer some of Israel's outstanding national parks. Within their confines are the reamins of four excavated ancient Nabatean cities: Avdat, Mamshit, Shivta and Nitzana.

Eilat, the southernmost city of Israel, is a unique oasis extended on the coast of the Red Sea. Eilat lives by the rhythm of the sun, the desert, the sea and nature itself. The calm transparent waters of the Red Sea reveal a delightful surprise - breathtakingly beautiful Coral Reefs and an enchanted underwater world, featuring thousands of varieties of fish and other marine life forms.
 Ein Bokek [ Dead See ] - tourist and therapeutic complex
Ein Bokek is now a modern oasis and panacea for health seekers and tourists alike, and lies in stark contrast to the barren, rugged and genesis landscape of the Judean Desert Cliffs surrounding the area. Notwithstanding, it has been visited by humans since their hunter-gatherer days many thousands of years ago throughout history to the present day. In biblical times the area supplied salt to the world from the huge deposit known as Mount Sodom just south of Ein Bokek. Because of the great value of salt as a meat preserver, it was widely desirable. Roman fortresses were erected and manned to protect the caravansaries transporting these shipments, one of which was situated at Ein Bokek. These archaeological remains and those of a nearby perfume and medicine factory which was also in operation at that time, open a door into another era.

 Golf van Akaba
 Khirbat en-Nahas ('ruÔnes van koper')
Hier liggen enorme bergen koperslak. Duidt er op dat hier ooit op industriŽle schaal koper werd gesmolten. Wellicht afkomstig uit de nabijgelegen mijnen (o.a. bij Feinan en Timna).
 Kopermijnen van Funon (het tegenwoordige Feinan)
Van de derde tot de vijfde eeuw na Christus verrichtten hier door de Romeinen veroordeelde verstokte misdadigers en andere misdadigers dwangarbeid.
 Kopermijnen van Timna
Omgeving is bezaaid met ondiepe groeven waar duizende jaren koper moet zijn gedolven. Nog steeds is hier in het landschap groengespikkeld, koperhoudend steen te vinden.
Koning Salomon heeft enorme hoeveelheden koper gebruikt voor de tempel in Jerusalem (waarvan een deel overigens door zijn vader op de SyriŽrs was buitgemaakt). In de tempel stond b.v. een enorm waterbekken (waar priesters zich konden wassen) wat zo'n 66.000 liter water kon bevatten.
 Lavra Netova  -  ondergrondse kapel op de berg Netofa
Eigenhandig door de Nederlandse monnik Jacob Willebrands (1918-2005) gebouwd (illegaal) klooster op een kale bergtop in Galilea. Jacob zocht naar verbroedering tussen joden en Palestijnen en wilde leven volgens de vroeg-christelijke monniken in het heilige land. Stapte als trappist over naar de met Rome verbonden Melkitische Kerk, een Grieks-katholieke christengemeenschap met vooral volgelingen in het Midden-Oosten.
 Meer van Tiberias
 Negev Woestijn
Qumran is a ruin from the days of the Second Temple on the northwest shore of the Dead Sea. It became famous since 1947 when a number of ancient manuscripts were found in nearby caves. These manuscripts are now known as the Dead Sea Scrolls...
 Rode Zee
 Schat van Nahal Mishmar (woestijn van Judea)
Hier werden in maart 1961 in een steile rots op een grot, verborgen in een holte en gewikkeld in riet, meer dan vierhonderd voorwerpen van koper gevonden (o.a. kronen, scepters, stukken gereedschap en wapens). De voorwerpen zijn wellicht duizenden jaren oud. Zie

 Dead Sea Research Center - Arthritis, Rheumatism, Psoriasis, Asthma Treatments
The Dead Sea area, famous for its health promoting environment for thousands of years, contains an unique solar irradiation, an increased oxygen density, a high density salty sea with an unusual salt composition, thermo-mineral springs and a special natural mud. The effects of these unique properties are presently being critically evaluated in terms of types of diseases treated, modes of therapy, and mechanism of healing. These endeavours are designed to help patients to find ways to promote their health by taking advantage of this unique environment in an optimal way.
 Garden Tomb Website  -  bij de Damascuspoort
It is believed by many to be the location of the garden of Joseph of Arimathea, outside the city walls, and the tomb where Jesus Christ was laid after His crucifixion; and rose from death.
 Nativity Church in Bethlehem
The Nativity Church is the oldest church in the Holy Land and probably the oldest in the world. In the year 135 A.D. Hadrian desecrated the cave of Nativity, surrounding it by a temple dedicated to Adonis. This desecration of the cave served to fix the site indelibly for the future. Queen Helena, mother of Emperor Constantine, built in 324 AD a magnificent basilica over the cave of Nativity. The basilica in an octagonal structure was very richly decorated with marble mosaics and frescoes. In 529 AD, the church was badly damaged by the Samaritans who revolted against the Byzantine Empire. Remains of the mosaic pavements of this church are still visible inside the basilica. Justinian had the basilica rebuilt, adding a trifoil shaped triple apse. In 614, when the Persians destroyed all churches and convents, the Church of the Nativity was the only church which evaded destruction.
 Orion Center for the Study of the Dead Sea Scrolls
The Center aims to stimulate and foster research on the Scrolls, particularly the great task of integrating the new information gained from the Scrolls into the body of knowledge about Jewish history and religion in the Second Temple period. Such integration will affect areas like biblical studies, Jewish literature and thought of the Second Temple Period, earliest Christianity and the New Testament, the study of early rabbinic Judaism, and more.

 Israel: A History  -  Martin Gilbert
Israel is a small and relatively young country, but its turbulent history has placed it squarely at the centre of the world stage for most of this century. For two millennia the Jews, dispersed all over the world, prayed for a return to Zion. Until the nineteenth century, that dream seemed a fantasy, but then a secular Zionist movement was born and soon the initial trickle of Jewish immigrants to Palestine turned into a flood as Jews fled persecution in Europe. From these beginnings, Martin Gilbert traces the events and personalities that would lead to the sudden, dramatic declaration of Statehood in May 1948.
From that point on, Israel's history has been dominated by conflict: Suez, the Six Day War, the Yom Kippur War, the Lebanon and the Intifada. Using contemporary documents and eyewitness accounts, drawing on his own intimate knowledge of the country and its people, Martin Gilbert weaves together a seamless, page -turning history of a powerful and proud nation.

 Jeruzalem. Een biografie  - Simon Sebag Montefiore
Jeruzalem is een grootse geschiedenis van de Eeuwige Stad aan de hand van de levens van koningen, veroveraars, soldaten en bouwers, van koning David, Nebukadnezar, Caesar, Jezus tot Ariel Sharon; een stad bewoond door MacedoniŽrs en Perzen, Grieken en Romeinen, Palestijnen en IsraŽliŽrs. De stad is zo vaak in andere handen geweest dat dit standaardwerk ook een geschiedenis is van het woelige Midden -Oosten, van het verre verleden tot het heden. Jeruzalem is een bijzonder levendig verhaal over macht, liefde, geloof, luxe, ijdelheid en dood.
Vertaald door Henk Moerdijk, George Pape en Mieke Hulsbosch.

Muziek, Cultuur & Evenementen

 Israelische muziek  -  Israel Music

 Cultuur van Israťl  -  Culture of Israel

Tot de Tweede Wereldoorlog was het Yiddisch de meest gangbare taal van de Europese Joodse gemeenschap. Het Yiddisch is gebaseerd op het Duits maar is sterk beÔnvloed door het Hebreeuws. Later werden er ook Slavische elementen in de taal opgenomen doordat steeds meer Joden zich in Oost-Europa vestigden. Op dit moment wordt de taal niet veel meer gesproken omdat de jongste generaties veelal de taal van hun thuislanden hebben aangenomen (IsraŽl, VS, Rusland).
