Holiday in Israel

Jerusalem

Jerusalem

Israel is located in the Middle East, on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea.
It borders Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan and the West Bank in the east, Egypt and the Gaza Strip on the southwest, and the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea to the south.

Four different geographic regions exist in Israel, the country’s is located between the temperate and the tropical zones, with the Mediterranean Sea in the west and the desert in the east. Because of this the flora and fauna of Israel is extremely diverse. There are 380 Israeli Nature Reserves.

Tourism, especially religious tourism, is an important industry in Israel, with the country’s temperate climate, beaches, archaeological and historical sites, and unique geography drawing international tourists. In 2012, over 3.5 million tourists visited Israel and Israel has the highest number of museums per capita in the world.

Israel’s diverse culture is a reflection of diversity of the population: Jews from around the world have imported their cultural and religious traditions creating a melting pot of Jewish customs and beliefs. Israel is the only country in the world where life revolves around the Hebrew calendar. Work and school holidays are determined by the Jewish holidays, and the official day of rest is Saturday.

Israeli cuisine has adopted, and continues to adapt, elements of various styles of Jewish cuisine from different parts of the world: Moroccan, Iraqi, Ethiopian, Indian, German, Polish, Russian, Yemenian and others cultural influences.

When to Visit Israel
Spring and Autumn is the ideal time to visit Israel in many ways, the peak summer season hasn’t yet begun. Nice and hot during the day, a bit breezy in the evening and occasional showers.

Summer and Winter
Summer in Israel can be very hot, and it’s the peak season, since this is when younger people in school from around the world make the trip to Israel. As a result, airfare and hotels are more expensive, and attractions are more crowded. Some parts of Israel go below freezing in the winter. Rain is common, and even snow in some places.

Jewish festivals: Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Sukkot ( Autumn ) and Passover ( spring)
Visiting the country during this time is generally more expensive and crowded. Most non-religious tourists stay away during this time.
