The modern State of Israel was established in 1948, but the region's history dates back several millennia. In Jewish tradition, Israel was the Promised Land for the Hebrews; among Christians, it was the birthplace of Jesus and Christianity; and according to Muslim belief, this was the place where Mohammad ascended from earth to heaven. Even more than a religious heritage spanning the three most major faiths in the world, Israel is the meeting point of three continents. Its militarily and commercially strategic location brought thousands of years worth of conquering armies. The Canaanites, Hebrews, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Crusaders, Ottoman Turks, and the British have occupied this small country and left their imprints on the cultural tapestry. From Jerusalem to the Golan Heights and Nazareth to the Dead Sea, Israel is ever evolving while never losing sight of history.

Wailing Wall: The Western Wall is known by a number of names: Kotel, Wailing Wall, Solomon's Wall, and more. It is located in the Old Quarter of East Jerusalem at the foot of the western side of the Temple Mount in Israel. The wall stands at 187 feet tall and is built of thick limestone - it extends approximately 1,600 feet but much of it is obstructed by homes and other structures. The exposed portion of the wall faces a large plaza in the Jewish Quarter and it is considered the second most sacred site by the Jewish faith, outside of the Temple Mount itself, drawing pilgrimage and prayer from around the world since the 16th century.

Dome of the Rock: The Dome of the Rock is a Muslim shrine and the most famous Islamic site in all of Jerusalem. Built upon the Temple Mount in AD 691, it is located on the highest part of Mount Moriah and can be seen from all over Jerusalem. Mount Moriah is where Jews and Christians believe Abraham was prepared to offer his son Isaac as a sacrifice to God. It is one of the oldest works of Islamic architecture and much of its significance stems from the religious traditions surrounding the Foundation Stone, located at its heart, which is said to be where Muhammad ascended to heaven.
