The Luscious Fruit of the Judean Desert

From Biblical times to modern day, Israel has always been at the forefront of Judaism. The Jewish people have long maintained both physical and religious ties to the holy land. God promised the land to Abraham, ” To your offspring I will give this land” Genesis 12:7, and the covenants with Isaac and Jacob saw Israel as God’s gift to the Jewish people. Israel is the body for the soul of the Jewish people. Israel is such a focal part of Judaism that the Pentateuch ends with God once again telling Moses that “This is the land which I swore to Abraham, Isaac and to Jacob”, Deuteronomy 34:4.

Modern day Israel shares the same language and culture shaped by the Jewish heritage and religion, and the Jews have had continuous presence in the land of Israel for the past 3,300 years. Referred to as “a land flowing with milk and honey”, Exodus 3:8 & Deuteronomy 30:20, Israel’s beauty and splendor never cease to amaze with its rich, fertile, and desirable land.

The modern day Jewish State of Israel, founded in 1948, is a stepping stone from the exile of our land to the building of the Third Temple. The enchantment of the land has led to Jews from all over the world making Israel their home. With over 6 000 000 Jews now living in Israel, the Jewish State is thriving. The holy soil is once again being cultivated, with Israel as a true member of the 21st Century, producing technologies that have changed your life.
