Land of Pilgrimage
Israel is the Holy Land of the Bible, the sacred text of both Judaism and Christianity. Within its borders fall numerous holy sites that have been known and revered throughout history: Jerusalem’s Western Wall, the Mount of Olives, the Sea of Galilee/Lake Kinneret, Mount Carmel, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and many more. Each year, Israel welcomes many thousands of religious Jews and Christians who come to visit these sites. For them, Israel is not a foreign country but a much loved and cherished spiritual homeland.
