Beit El Israel
We shall start our day near Beit El settlement which still carries the name of the ancient biblical city and the secret site of Jacob’s dream. Using the Bible we’ll understand the geography of the site in biblical times and why this exact site is matching to Beit El’s location, not just according to research but according to the bible too.
After enjoying the sights of Beit El and its surroundings we’ll be driving towards Shiloh, the ancient biblical city which was the first capital of Israel in the period of the Judges and the residence of the tabernacle. The city existed almost consecutively from the Israeli period up to the middle ages due to its sanctity and status. We will visit this unique and ancient site, hear the history of Shiloh throughout the generations and see with our own eyes the ancient ruins and the place where the tabernacle stood until it was destroyed by the Philistines.
