From the lush north, to the alluring beaches of Tel Aviv, the beauty of Israel is difficult to describe in words. In order to best capture the splendour of the Holy Land, I turned to the @TimesOfIsrael Instagram for some of the most stunning pictures from the the Times of Israel Instagram community.
