Jerusalem, Israel
Shopping in the food markets of other countries is always interesting to us. Across the street from the Mahane Yehuda Market, aka the Shuk, is a small shop called The World Spices. We found several spices that were new to us, including a Moroccan...

Jerusalem, Israel
The first time I visited Jerusalem was in 1991 during the time of the Arab uprising called Intifada. I arrived in this holy city and immediately sprinted to the Old City despite being warned it was one of the more unsafe areas. Despite Jerusalem...

Jerusalem
Known in Hebrew as the Kotel, the Western Wall is singularly the holiest of sites for Jews. On the other side of the Western Wall is the Temple Mount. For centuries, Temple Mount was the location of the sacred First and Second Temples for the...

Derech Ruppin, Jerusalem, Israel
It hardly rains in Israel so there is no use saving this museum for a rainy day. The vast collection of art, archeology, sculptures and antiques can easily keep one entertained for hours. I definitely recommend beginning with the Model of...

Jerusalem, 9195000, Israel
Very interesting tours are available of the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) building, including the spectacular Chagall windows. Check the schedule for specific times of tours in English (or any other language you may know). Alas, no pictures allowed...

Suite 3, בית השואבה 10, ירושלים
I went to Israel in July. When my tour group neared a hilltop, we got off the bus single file with our eyes closed. When we simultaneously opened our eyes, this is what we saw.

ד.נ עמק המעיינות, Nir David, 10803, Israel
Some might say that archeology is Israel's national hobby, as Israel is rich with archeological sites, more than 20,000 recognized sites in Israel, dating back to 150,000 BC. In 2005 UNESCO declared 3 sites in Israel as World Heritage sites...

Mount of Olives, Jerusalem
During my tour of Israel this summer our group of ten came across this camel being offered us to ride. It looked sketchy to me so I politely turned the man down. Later that day our guide said that the camels trained by the Israeli men are...

This quickly captured image of a woman sweeping the entrance to Mary's Grotto in Jerusalem, near the Garden of Gethsemane and Mount of Olives, is provocative in the sense that, in Christian theology, Mary was a servant to give birth to God's Son,...

Get these warm, soft beauties just outside the Jaffa Gate to Old Jerusalem. This is the main entrance for most tourists into the Old City. You can join several different excellent walking tours of the Old City that start here.

HaYarkon St 205, Tel Aviv-Yafo, 6340506, Israel
While Jerusalem is the official capital of Israel, Tel Aviv is considered to be the capital of style and culture. Enjoy starting your day with a stroll along the beach or a great, rich breakfast in one of many outdoor cafes along some of the...

Omar Ibn Katab, ירושלים
Israelis love to eat and therefore snacks and street food are playing an important role in the day. Favorite snacks include bagel shaped seasame sprinkled bread (can be found in the shuk or most likely in the old city of Jerusalem), falafel (fried...

Mahane Yehuda, Jerusalem, Israel
I went to Israel for two weeks and I came back at least 10 pounds heavier. My downfall began with a trip to Mahane Yehuda (the “Shuk”), Jerusalem’s oldest and largest market where I discovered Israeli cheese, halva, pastries, cookies, olives,...

Jerusalem
Being at the Western Wall was far from what I had expected. On a crowded Sunday morning, I had to fight my way through hundreds of women in order to even see it. As I got closer, soon I began to see folded prayers on the ground. Even though the...

Although I was there to experience the Holy Land, and actually stayed in Old Jerusalem while visiting, it is with great joy I enjoyed this unbelievable "Light" (pun intended!) fun experience. To enjoy this fantastic area of the world and get this...

Jerusalem, Israel
This holiday has long been called the “Festival of Lights.” But, Tel Aviv is a modern, secular city so it was hard to find much in the way of Hanukkah celebrations. Jerusalem was a different story with menorahs in so many windows and families...

Jaffa, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
Jaffa is an old city port adjoins to Tel Aviv and it is a mixed city of Arabs and Jews. The legend says that Japheth, the son of Noah, found a pleasant hill overlooking a bay and settled down, naming the place 'Yafo'. This is one of the oldest...

Jerusalem
One of the most significant sites in the world. It's easy to come back here over and over to see how the changing light highlights different elements throughout the day.
