The City of David is the birthplace of the city of Jerusalem, the place where King David established his kingdom. One of the most fascinating parts of the City of David is the tunnel of Shiloh - a 533-meter-long tunnel that was carved during the period of King Hezkiyahu. The tunnel extends from the city to the well at Shiloh, and is an astounding engineering feat. Its builders carved the tunnel through solid rock beginning from opposite ends and succeeded in making the two sides meet in the middle. If you visit the archaeological park, you can walk through the tunnel which is partially filled with water, and come out at the pools of Shiloh. Touring the City of David is like taking a walk through ancient history! Now you can take history with you wherever you go with City of David Jewelry. Each breathtaking piece is designed from inspirations of actual archaeological findings in the Biblical city.

Today's verse refers to King David, the second monarch of Israel. David was the youngest son of Jesse and his ordination came as a surprise to his family. The 'hated stone', the seemingly young, immature or unworthy brother, was chosen as king, the 'cornerstone' of the Davidic dynasty. King David's message is clear; every individual has intrinsic value and endless potential. 'TikvaHope' brings joy to underprivileged children who truly take this message to heart. This Purim, show kindness to the neediest youth of Israel, and help them discover their inner value.
The city of Jerusalem is the holiest and most adored in Jewish tradition. This is highlighted throughout the Bible which describes the city as the height of beauty. In Tamar Messer's hands, the Holy City transforms into a vivid dream, the Jerusalem stone and the orange and yellow hues so commonly found in its streets, depicted with a unique vibrancy.
The indentations shown in yesterday's photo are called crenulations. These indentations can occur naturally in nature, or they can be chiseled into the stone structure as was done in the old city walls.
David sings a song of gratitude to God after defeating his enemies. Sometimes God’s support is in the form of a ‘still small voice’ (I Kings 19:12); other times it shakes the very foundations of the world. In Israel, there have been a number of quakes which shook the earth over the years. The Dead Sea, for example, is a result of a cataclysmic rift in the earth’s crust, a result of the shifting of plates under the surface. This shift produced mountain ranges and volcanoes in the Golan Heights, as well as deep fissures. The Dead Sea was formed from one of these fissures, and is the world's largest hypersaline lake. Aside from being a fantastic vacation destination, the waters of the Dead Sea have been proven to have a host of healing powers. Feel Israel on your skin with our most popular Dead Sea products!
