Come to Israel. See the wonders

This is a picture story. 

It's about an Israel you 

might not know.

This could be 
an important story because, 

when you read about Israel, 
you can easily forget 

that Israel 
a real place.

You can forget that Israel 
is more than a land

where dispute and hate dominate.

Israel is not just a 'place'. It's not just a desert. 

It's something more.

It's a geographic kaleidoscope.  It's got a 

beauty and variety that's spell-binding.

The physical beauty of
this Israel suggests the Presence  

of a  Spiritual Power. 

Here's a very quick look at the real Israel--

from its snow-capped
to the hot sting of a sea of salt to 
the breath-taking Beauty of  HaShem's fingerprint 
on earth.

This is the Israel you've heard about:

This is Israel's 'Grand Canyon'. But it isn't a canyon. it's a machtesh. What's the difference between a canyon and a machtesh? Look it up!!!! Courtesy of  jerusalemhillsdailyphotoblogspot

Finally, whenever you think about Israel, please remember that there are just two reasons for Israel's success. The first reason is, HaShem protects what He loves. The second reason for Israel's success is perhaps more mundane:

Come home to Israel. It's beautiful. It's unique. It's yours.

It's a gift from HaShem--forever.
