The Other Face of Israel
By design, this website focuses on such matters as Israeli security and rights, and national political events. As critical as it is to examine and understand these issues, to imply that they represent the totality of what one needs to know about Israel would be to do a disservice to the country.
Israel is both child-centered, and a place where archeology sparks considerable interest. It is a strikingly beautiful land where hiking and camping are national pastimes. A country where books are published at an extraordinary rate, and where trees are planted more often than cut down.
Israelis function from day to day in a normal fashion. Many extend kindnesses, and some attain remarkable achievements -- especially in the worlds of medical science and hi tech.
On this page, as we touch just briefly upon at least some of these things, we will see Israel's other face. Truly is Israel a blessing to the nations of the world.
As you read about Israeli scholarship, Israeli medical and technological advances, and Israeli humanitarian services offered to other nations, remember that Israel is the 100th smallest country in the world with less than 1/1,000th of the world's population.
