With all the politics and noise surrounding Israel, it is often easy to overlook the sheer and amazing beauty of Israel. The rich history, people, culture, sights, food – so much beauty in the land of Israel. 

Some great quotes to make one relish the wonders of the Land Of Israel:

  • “The view of Jerusalem is the history of the world; it is more, it is the history of earth and of heaven.” Benjamin Disraeli
  • “Israel is a beautiful country, there’s no denying that fact. With its diverse landscapes and scenery, ranging from desert in the south, to lush green hills in the north, that beauty is incredibly varied, and whilst travelling in Israel you are almost certain to, very often, gasp in awe at the beauty this land has to offer.” TouristIsrael.com
  • “Even the very pronunciation of Israel – “ISS-RAA-EEELLLL” brings chills to my bones for my love of Israel” Ron Hershco
  • “They may be hot, crowded and swarming with jellyfish, but Tel Aviv beaches are apparently a world-class asset. National Geographic yesterday published a list of the world’s 10 best beach cities and rated Tel Aviv alongside Barcelona, Rio de Janeiro, Nice (on the French Riviera) and Cape Town.”
  •  “Just thinking about a trip to Israel can be so exhilarating! You visualize the beauty of the sights, the special feeling in the air – a wonderful, meaningful getaway.” Shifra Bamberger
  • “We do not rejoice in victories. We rejoice when a new kind of cotton is grown and when strawberries bloom in Israel.” Golda Meir

  • “Wading through a dark, 2,700-year-old [Hezekiah’s] tunnel with gushing water is a real Indiana Jones experience.” Michael Kohn

  • “Israel is beautiful – and it’s the place where the stories of the Bible actually took place.” Michael Lichtenstein
  • “The Negev has been considered a Garden of Eden for adventurers since the establishment of the State of Israel.
