Israel lies on the tectonic plates where the continents of Africa and Asia, the East and the West, and the Heavenly and the Earthly all collide. No other place is quite like it.

Not only is Israel the birthplace of religions and ideas that lie at the heart of Western Civilization, but this tiny land encompasses incredible diversity on every level—deserts and forested mountains, awesome holy sites and hedonistic beaches, ancient walled cities and coral reefs in crystal-clear waters, medieval bazaars and sleek high-tech society. To millions of Jews, Christians, and Muslims, Israel is the Holy Land where Solomon reigned in all his glory, where Jesus taught and performed miracles, and where Muhammad visited during a miraculous night journey from Mecca. Yet amid this swirl of charisma, history, legends, and spiritual pull, Israel is also a modern, lively, innovative country that’s fun and fascinating for visitors.
