I visited Israel, the Hollyland,
in July 2000. Israel is situated on Mediterranean Sea, surrounded by Egypt, Syria
, Jordan, Lebanon. Jerusalem is the capital. Israel is a young country, small in size, but with a widely
varied landscape and a culturally active, heterogeneous population of justover 5 million. It is a place
where East meets West; where past and present touch; and where ideologies mold lifestyles. Hibru is the
language of Israel, but people understand and speak English. As Israel is a predominantly Jewish country,
the working week is quite different to the other countries. The official working week is Sunday-Thursday
In Tel Aviv, Atul, Uttam, Prakash
Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, is one of the oldest city.
It has another extended part known as west Jerusalem, the new city.
It is a holy city for Christian, Jewish and Muslim. The Old City is divided into
Armenian, Christian, Jewish and Muslim quarters.
