Overview

Be spiritually prepared for your journey in Israel.
The only travel guide to Israel that will help you to prepare spiritually for your visit. Combining, in quick reference format, ancient blessings, medieval prayers, biblical references, and modern poetry, it helps today's pilgrim tap into the deep spiritual meaning of the ancient-and modern-sites of the Holy Land. For each of 25 major tourist destinations-from the Western Wall to Masada to a kibbutz in the Galilee-it gives guidance in sharply focused, four-step sections:
Anticipation: To read in advance. Information to help orient you in the site's historical context.
Approach: To read on the way there. Readings from traditional and modern sources to orient you in the site's spiritual context.
Acknowledgment: To read at the site. A prayer or blessing to integrate the experience into your spiritual consciousness.
Afterthought: Journaling space for writing your own thoughts and impressions.
More than a guidebook: It is a spiritual map of the Holy Land.
