Brought to you by The Jewish Agency for Israel,
the Jewish University In CyberspacE (JUICE) 

We have become accustomed to the idea of touring without getting out of our chairs, without our coffee getting cold or beer getting warm (except  of course, in England). For some of us, the Bible is something we read for comfort or knowledge, but for many it is far removed from our daily reality.

We have therefore created the Tour of Biblical Israel . This site is both a resource for our course in Biblical Geography, and is also designed as an educational and enjoyable site within itself, putting both the Land of Israel and the Bible in some perspective to which we can relate.

One of the nicest aspects of visiting Israel is that the Bible becomes alive . It is no longer , a "history book" or revelation, but an actual tour guide. Holding onto that thought, it is our hope that this site will provide you with a greater insight to both the Land of Israel and the Bible, whetting your appetite for more of either. Perhaps it will encourage you to finish your cup of coffee and take a walk - map in one hand, the Bible in the other.

So with a copy of the Bible in your hand , click on the map, and enjoy yourself. Oh - and don't read on the bus - it can make you car sick.
