This program presents important historical and modern locations in Israel. First, Tiberius, located on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee; legend has it that King Solomon came here for the healing powers of the mineral springs. Next, the Sea of Galilee, Israel's most important source of fresh water; it feeds the Jordan River and is a great recreational spot. Tel Aviv we see is Israel's largest and most cosmopolitan city; it is the financial and commercial center of the country. The Dead Sea, located at the foot of the Jordan River, is 1200 feet below sea level, making this sea the lowest point in the world. Kibbutz Ein Gedi is located on the western shore of the Dead Sea; it is known for farming, manufacturing, and tourism. The historical sight Masada was the ancient fortress of King Herod and was the last castle that managed to survive due to its geographical position.
