Overview


Jewish Journeys Near Jerusalem provides an introduction to those sites that are convenient to Jerusalem as a travel base. Hours and fees are given—from the cable car up to Massada to a goat farm in Itamar, from an art museum in Maaleh Adumim to the remnants of ancient Beit Shemsh. The book describes several industrial factories that are not open to the public. These are included to give the reader a better appreciation of life in the area and an understanding of the history of many products seen on supermarket shelves. Since ancient times, Israel has been famous for its wine, and today there are more than two hundred wineries in the country. This volume contains the Kosher Wine Guide, providing fascinating details about many of the wineries near Jerusalem, how they started, and what kinds of wine they produce (visits often with tasting). If you enjoyed Jewish Journeys in Jerusalem, you should certainly like this sequel.
