In Tel Aviv there is a memorial in Bet HaAzma'ut (Bet Dizengoff - Independence Hall) in the 16 Sderot (Blvd) Rothschild, which also from a religious point of view is the most important place in the history of modern Israel. There the State of Israel was founded on 14th May 1948 and a Bible verse on the right hand of the entrance hall shows, that the Jews experienced the living God, when their state was built up: And I will turn the captivity of my people Israel, and they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them" (Amos 9:14)
The museum is open from Sunday to Friday 9 a.m. - 2 p.m..

In front of this Bet HaAzma'ut where the State of Israel was founded you can see in the middle of the street a monument which shows the building up of Tel Aviv. At the base of the monument a Bible verse from Jeremiah 31:4 says: (God speaks:) "Again, I will build you, and you shall be built, virgin of Israel."

The 2 main words ( ("I will build you, and you shall be built.")) of this Bible verse Jer 31:4 are inscribed in the coat of arms of Tel Aviv. Therefore You can find these 2 words with very small letters on all gullies in Tel Aviv, which all are decorated with a small coat of arms.

In front of the new big building at the southern end of Rothschild Blvd beside Herzl Str there is a fountain with 3 big standing mosaics, designed by Nahum Gutman, which stood before at Bialik Square. Among others the story of Jona is displayed. The following 3 Bible verses are written in Hebrew on the mosaics: Already mentioned, Jeremiah 31:4: "Again, I will build you, and you shall be built." - "But Jonah ran away from the Lord and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Jafo, where he found a ship." (Jonah 1:3) - "And we will cut all the logs from Lebanon that You need and will float them in rafts by sea down to Jafo." (2 Chronicles 2:16)

The Eretz-Israel-Museum is situated in the north of Tel Aviv. At the fence of the museum area in HaUniversita street, at the crossing Reading street, there is a well inscribed with a quotation from Isaiah 21:14: "Bring water to them who are thirsty!".
In the museum area, the section "Man and His Work" (shown on the map no.18) located just behind the entrance to the right certainly deserves special attention. There, tools typical of the world of work in biblical times are exhibited and illustrated with quotations taken from the Bible.
The museum is open from Sunday to Wedneesday, 10 am- 4 pm, on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., on Friday and on Shabbat from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m..

In Jaffa, there is Mifratz Shlomo street, which is a little higher than the shore and runs parallel to it, leading to the main place. Near the wall level with the museum of antiques, there is an intact well where you can quench your thirst. A quotation from Isaiah 44:3 is inscribed above it: "(The Lord speaks:) I will pour water upon him who is thirsty."

In the south of Tel Aviv, there is the Lehi museum which presents the history of the Lehi group, the third and smallest group of Jewish fighters (besides Haganah and Irgun) which was active under British rule. This group fought above all against the British enactments prohibiting the immigration of Jewish refugees coming from the sphere of influence of the Nazis. The Lehi group was integrated into the Israeli army "Zahal", after the foundation of the State of Israel. At the museum, you can see group commander Abraham Sterns Bible with the words he had underlined and his tiny psalm prayer book, which he nearly always had on him. Furthermore, you can read quotations from the Bible in several places: Psalm 144:1: "Blessed be the Lord my strength, who teached my hands to war, my fingers to fight." and Isaiah 30:22: "And in battles of wielding will he fight with them." The first part of Isaiah 58:1 ("Cry aloud, spare not, lift up your voice like a trumpet.") is inscribed above the model of a secret transmitter station. The museum is in Stern street 8. (This very narrow street runs west of and parallel to HaKishon street, between Florentine and Emeq-Yisrael street.) The museum is open from Sunday to Thursday, 9 am- 4 pm.

The oldest part of Petah Tiqwa is near Kikar HaMejasedim (Founder's Square) in the city centre, south of the central bus station. In a corner of the place, you can see a modern water dispenser, which is located where the city founders drilled the first well. In Howewei Zion Street, which leads to Kikar HaMejasedim, there is a synagogue which dates back to the time of the city foundation (in 1890).

"Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people." (Jeremiah 8:23); "A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not." (Jeremiah 31:15); "Restrain thy voice from weeping and thine eyes from tears; ... and there is hope for thy children."(Jeremiah 31:16-17)
In the museum built in commemoration of the soldiers killed in action, the names of all soldiers from Petah Tiqwa killed in action are listed chronologically according to the wars in which they were killed. Beside the list of names, there are quotations from the bible:
"How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished." (2 Samuel 1:27); "The beauty of Israel is slain upon thy high places." (2 Samuel 1:19); David mourning for his friend Jonathan and King Saul: "They were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions." (2 Samuel 1:23).

This represents the people of Israel regaining strength, with their own army in the land of Israel, according to Isaiah 6:13: "And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. ... when they cast, the holy seed shall be the substance thereof." Also You'll find there a wall sculpture with a dead person and a weeping woman together with the Bible verse from Jeremiah 31:15: "she refused to be comforted for her children, because they were no more." In the memorial hall there is another wall sculpture with 2 mourning persons and the Bibel verse from Jeremiah 31:16: "Restrain thy voice from weeping and thine eyes from tears" On the outside wall of the building, there is also a mosaic showing a soldier carrying an arc and an arrow. This is explained in Hebrew by 2 Samuel 1:18: (David) "ordered that the men of Judah be taught the use of the bow."

The religious kibbuz Beerot Yitzchak is located on road 40 south of Petah Tiqwa. This kibbuz was situated near Gaza until the War of Independence; later the inhabitants of Beerot Yitzchak were allowed to settle down near Petah Tiqwa where they are a little safer; for they had to endure especially great sufferings because of both the Holocaust and the Egyptian attack during the War of Independence. The inhabitants of the kibbuz live according to the principle: "pray (read the bible) and work (defend yourself)". Documentation for visitors is under preparation. Two moving films about the kibbuz inhabitants history, faith and life are available at present only in Hebrew, but will soon be translated into German and English.

The moshav Bareqet is named after a gemstone at the priest's breastpiece (Choschen, Exodus 28:15-20): the third stone in the first row, probably an emerald. The breastpiece was made of 4 rows with 3 gemstones in every row. To remind people of the source of the moshav's name, You'll find at the entrance to the moshav on the wall a big, symbolic breastpiece.

If you turn off the motorway Tel Aviv - Jerusalem at Latrun junction to road No. 3 to the south, and turn right the next road behind Nahshon junction in the direction of Hulda, you will find after 200 meters the monument of valor ("Matsevet HaGevura") with a column located on a small hill. This monument was built to commemorate the defense of Jerusalems by the Israeli army during the War of Independence.
On the column is written: "If I forget, You, Jerusalem, then my right hand shall be absent." (Psalm 137:5). Over the boards commemorative of the fallen soldiers, a verse of Isaiah 2:4 c is written: "nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more."

Near the road Tel Aviv - Jerusalem, if you turn to the south to the road 38, you'll find a monument for the Machal()-volunteers after 500 m on the left side of the road 38 (fighters), i.e. a monument built in memory of the foreign - partially non-Jewish - soldiers, who fought voluntarily for Israel during the War of Independence. There is the Bible message Joshua 1:14: "All those of valour shall pass armed among Your brethren, and shall help them. "

Driving on the secondary road 395 between Eschtaaol and Jerusalem (parallel to main road 1), you turn off near Ramat Raziel in the direction of Megillat Esh (Fire Scroll). Moving several kilometers further, you get to two scroll-shaped bronze monuments several meters high erected in commemoration of the millions of Jews who perished in the fire of the Holocaust. The scrolls show many pictures representing scenes of Jewish history from biblical to modern times including the revival of Jewish civilization brough about by Zionism. Between the two scrolls you can read a quotation from Ezekiel 37:12+14 in Hebrew and English: "Thus saith the Lord God: Behold, o my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves and bring you into the land of Israel. ... And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land."

Near Main Road no. 1 between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, there is the memorial for those who during the War of Independence in 1948 succeeded in breaking through the enemy lines around Jerusalem, which was then under siege. You will see the memorial standing on the slope of a mountain. The memorial consists of a number of poles sticking out of the slope like the foundations of a bridge under construction on the road to Jerusalem. When driving eastwards (in the direction of Jerusalem), you can reach the memorial from Main Road no. 1 by turning northwards immediately after the junction Bet Meir but before the junction Newe Ilan / Abu Gosh. There is a parking lot very close to the main road. From there, you can walk upwards to the memorial.

1.3. Jerusalem

On the west side of Jerusalem's old city wall, rather in its north-west corner, there is a white stone on the ground. On it, you can read a quotation from Psalm 122:3-4 in Hebrew and English: "Our feet are standing in your gates, O Jerusalem. Jerusalem, you are built as a city which is compact together."

A bit south of the north-western corner of the city wall (which means north of the Jaffa gate) You find a memorial stone for a policeman, who was killed here. The stone is inscribed with Isaiah 62:6; "I have set watchmen upon Your walls Jerusalem."

A quotation from Nehemiah 4:1 is inscribed on the city wall, immediately to the left of the Jaffa gate: "that the walls of Jerusalem were made up."

In the Jaffa gate, on the northern side, there is a small display-case in which you can read a quotation from Psalm 122.6: "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!" in several languages.

West of the old city, 500 m south-west of the Jaffa gate, there is the picturesque quarter Yemin Moshe. The wonderful view of the old city , the beautiful paths running along flowerbeds make this place a romantic inside tip for visiting Jerusalem, especially by night. At the southern end of HaTiqwa path (south of HaMetsuda path), on a platform embellished with luxuriant vegetation (stairs above HaTiqwa path) to the south, you can find a stone inscribed with a quotation from 1 Samuel 2:26: "More and more the child Samuel grew on, and was in favour both with the Lord, and also with men."

The "Teddy Park" between the Jaffa gate and Yemin Moshe was inaugurated in 2013. There You can find - beside the fountain - a sundial with a Hebrew Bible verse from the book Ecclesiastes (Kohelet) 1:4-6: "Generations come and generations go, but the earth remains forever. The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back to where it rises. The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course."

Inside the old city there is in the Western Wall area a plate in Hebrew and English: Welcome to the western Wall. "Request the welfare of Jerusalem; may those who love you enjoy tranquility. May there be peace in your wall, tranquility in your palaces." (Psalm 122:6-7)

Just south of the Jewish Quater of the Old City You find the original area of Jerusalem, the City of David ("Ir David"). Just behind the entrance of the excavations You find in the court left-hand verses of Psalm 122, written on a stone in English, f.e.: "Our feet stood within your gates O Jerusalem. ... Pray for the peace of Jerusalem." Beside the Gihon spring You find the historical Bible verse from II Chronicles 32:30: "This same Hezekiah also stopped the upper spring of the waters of Gihon, and brought them straight down on the west side of the City of David."

In the west of the City od David and south of the old city on Mount Zion, there is the "Chamber of the Holocaust" memorial which was built before Yad WaShem. A quotation from Obadiah 17 in Hebrew and English:"And on Mt. Zion there will be a sanctuary for survivors and it will be holy." is inscribed above the entrance. Beside the entrance, you can also read a quotation from Genesis 4:10 in Hebrew: God said to Cain after Cain had killed his brother Abel: "Thy brother's blood crieth". In the yard, you can read a quotation from Jeremiah 31:14: "A voice was heard from on high, lamentation and bitter weeping; Rachel weeping for her children; she refused to be comforted for her children, because they are not." - on the memorial to the children murdered in the Holocaust. In the rooms at the rear, which are marked with a "T", there are black commemorative plaques bearing the names of people who were murdered. Above these plaques, the following quotations from the Bible are written in the shape of arches: Job 16:18: "O earth, cover not thou my blood"; Psalm 42:5: "When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me."; Joel 4:21: (God says:) "For I will cleanse their blood, that I have not cleansed: for the Lord dwelleth in Zion." In order to get to this memorial, take the footpath straight through the Zion gate, keeping a little to your left-hand side. Opening hours: Sunday to Thursday from 8 am to 5 pm, and on Friday from 8 am to 1 pm.

South-west of the old city opposite Zion mountain, a bridge for pedestrians crosses Derech Hevron street which leads to the South (Bethlehem, Hebron). Beside it is St.Andrews church. At the western end of the bridge, there is a peace memorial. Below it, you can see parts of scrap weapons, which are welded together to form kinds of farming tools. On them, a white column rises up, which is inscribed with a quotation from the 2nd part of Isaiah 2:4. in Arabic and Hebrew: "And they will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruninghooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they learn war any more." This evokes the hope that one day even Israel will no longer need an army to ensure its survival.

Further to the south of Jerusalem, in the quarter Talpiyot, on Hebron Street no. 101, there is a large white building of the telephone company Beseq. On the facade of this building, there is a mosaic showing water, land and a rainbow. Below it, a quotation from Genesis 9:13 is written in Hebrew: (God says:) "I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth."

To the far south of Jerusalem, there is the kibbutz Ramat Rahel, with the large kibbutz hotel Mizpe Rahel. On the left of the hotel entrance, in a park, you will find a sculpture a bit hidden by the bushes close to the park's first green. The sculpture represents Rahel with a sad face hugging two children. The sculpture is related to the nearby grave of Rahel, who died when giving birth to her second son Benjamin, and evokes Jeremiah 31:15: "Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were no more." Under the sculpture, you will notice a quotation from Jeremiah 31:17 (in the same chapter as the above-mentioned quotation): "Thy children shall come again to their own border." This quotation is God's promise to save her children, in response to the suffering she expressed before. The wall of the hotel lobby is inscribed with Genesis 13:8 in many languages (including German): "So Abram said to Lot: Please let there be no strife between me and you, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen, for we are kinsmen."

The interactive "Friends of Zion"-Museum (FOZ) in the city center supports the State of Israel from a christian-zionist view and presents the modern history of Israel mostly through biographies. Many Bible verses are cited:
Psalm 122:6: "Request the welfare of Jerusalem; may those who love you enjoy tranquility. May there be peace in your wall, tranquility in your palaces." -
Isaiah 43:5-6: "I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, 'give them up!' and to the south, 'do no hold them back.' Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth."
Ezekiel 20:34: "I will bring you from the nations and gather you from the countries where you have been scattered - with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with outpoured wrath." -
Ezekiel 34:13: "I will bring them out from the nations and gather them from the countries, and I will bring them into their own land."-
Amos 9:14-15: "I will bring back my exiled people Israel. They will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine.

Deuteronomy 16:17: "Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God, which he has given you."

We strongly recommend the Bible-Lands Museum in Jerusalem. The museum is structured according to the different periods of biblical history. The exhibits in every department are illustrated with numerous quotations from the Bible. This museum is much more interesting than the Israel museum directly beside it.

1.4. South of Tel Aviv and the Negev Desert

North-west of Rechovot there is the youth village Ayanot, which is part of the regional council "Gan Raveh" ("well-watered garden"). At the entrance of the school You'll find in Hebrew a sign with the names of the village and the council and at the bottom the Bible verse, from which "Gan Raveh" is taken: "You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail." (Isaiah 58:11)

Just south of Rechovot the kibbuz Giv'at Brenner is situated. The memorial for the fallen is inscribed with the Bible verse Jeremiah 22:10: "Because he will never return."

Just nearby the town of Qiryat Ekron is situated. The town's Memorial of the Fallen is inscribed with words from the Bible: "I will give them within my house and its walls a memorial and a name (Yad Wa Shem) ... that will not cut off." (Isaiah 56:5)

Driving on road 40 between Rechovot and Gedera, you can see to the west the memorial to the paratroopers whose central part bears an inscription from 2 Samuel 1:23 in Hebrew: David mourning for his friend Jonathan and King Saul: "they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions." On the right column of the memorial there is a Hebrew sentence inscribed, written by Hanna Szenes: "A voice called me and I came; I came, because a voice called me." Hanna Szenes went back to Nazi-Europe by choice to save persecuted Jews. She wrote also a prayer-poem, which became a famous Israeli song: "Eli, eli" ("My God, my God"). Therefore the meaning of the sentence is, that someone heard God's voice and follwed him to defend human lives.

In the village of Aseret You'll find on the memorial of the fallen the Bible verse from 2 Samuel 1:19: "The beauty ... How are the mighty fallen."

Gedera existed even in biblical times (Joshua 15:36, 1 Chronicles 4:23). It was founded in 1884 (See below chapter 2..) again by religious "Bilu" Zionists (named after the initial letters of Isaiah 2:5: Beit-Ia'akov Lechu Unelcha ("O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk (in the light of the Lord)!") who placed special emphasis on the observance of the Sabbat and the Sabbatical year. Isaiah 2:5 and another Bible verse is inscribed in the coat of arms (picture): We should go up and take posession of the land, for we can certainly do it." (Numbers 13,30) The meaning of the name Gedera is explained in Hosea 2:8 (6): God wants to protect Israel from the temptation to serve the Pagan gods by building Gedera (a wall for her) for Israel.
Today's Biluim Street is the street where the first houses were built. Almost in the centre of the town it branches off from road 40 eastwards. First you see the town's oldest house built in 1886. Higher up there is the museum (house no. 21). The exhibits and explanations shown there are very interesting but the museum is very small. It will probably be enlarged. In the museum you can read quotations from the bible in Hebrew and English: 1 Chronicles 4:23: "These were the potters, who dwelt at Netaim and Gedera; they dwelt there in the king's service." Three quotations from the bible serve to summarize the modern history of Gedera and the whole of Israel: Isaiah 60:22: "The smallest shall become a thousand."; Isaiah 11:12: (God will gather Israel) "from the four corners" (of the earth); Isaiah 60:22: "And the least a mighty nation."
The museum is open from Sunday to Thursday from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm, on Wedneesday also from 4 to 6 pm, it is closed on Friday and Shabbat.

In Nir Galim there You find since 2009/2014 the "Holocaust Memorial Museum "Bet Ha-Edut" (House of the Testimony), which portrays not only the suffering during the Holocaust, but also the revival of the victims in the new born State of Israel, including some of the residents of Nir Galim. Beside the museum's entrance there is a Bible verse written on the wall from Genesis 31:48: "Ed ha-Gal ha-se.", eng: "These stones are testifying."

The kibbuz Revadim is located on road 3 north of Qiryat Malachi. The Philistine city of Ekron was excavated near the kibbuz, where you can find a museum exhibiting things found during the excavations and reconstructed objects illustrating the ancient history of Israel: for example a reconstructed loom inscribed with a quotation from Judges 16:13 (Simson says to Delila:) "If thou weavest the seven locks of my head with the web". The museum is open from Sunday to Thursday from 9 am to 3 pm and on Friday from 9 am to 12.30 pm.

Southeast of Ashdod You'll find inside the moshav Azrikam - written on a memorial wall for the fallen - Hebrew words from 2 Samuel 1:23: "They were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions."

On Road No. 383, which links the main roads no. 3 and 38 together, a little west of the town Gefen, near the northern side of the road, there is the memorial for the soldiers of the Communications and Computer Unit, who were killed in action. It is a modest memorial which shows a white lightning on a blue background beside a quotation from Ezra 3:13: "And the noise was heard afar off."

Between Ashdod and Ashqelon the moshav Giv'ati is situated. At the memorial stone for the fallen You'll find a Hebrew Bible verse from 2 Sam 1:19: "The beauty of Israel is slain upon thy high places."

Gush Etzion ( ) is a group of religious settlements founded even before the War of Independence. These were then taken and destroyed by the Jordanian army and were integrated into the Jordanian territory. After the War of 1967, the destroyed settlements were reconstructed. The museum of the history of Gush Etzion is located in the so-called German Monastery of the settlement Kfar Etzion ( ; the reconstructed building was the settlers' last defensive position; the arsenal was in the cellar of the building; there you can see a moving multi-media show (also in German or English) illustrating the sufferings of the settlers who even under fierce attacks did not forget to read the bible and finally accepted their defeat out of God's hands. This presentation contains many references to the bible just as the small history book and the collection of photos you can buy there. One of the photos shows a poster which was designed when the settlement was founded again in 1967: The poster shows settlers farming the land again and above this scene you can read quotations from Jeremiah 31:17: "And your children will come again to their own country." and Haggai 2:9: "The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts." On the plate at the entrance to the memorial garden for the first settlers You can read Psalm 133:3: "For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore."
The museum of the history of Kfar Etzion is open from Sunday to Thursday from 8.30 am to 1 pm and on Friday from 8.30 am to 11 am (contact in advance is recommended: phone: 02-993 51 60). The easiest way to reach Gush Etzion and Kfar Etzion is the new road from Jerusalem to Hebron, a road which begins in Gilo, a southern quarter of Jerusalem. Half-way from Jerusalem to Hebron, you can see clear signs indicating Gush Etzion.

The museum "Ma'oz mul Aza" ("fortress facing Gaza") is located immediately before the Gaza strip. An observation tower which dates from the War of Independence is at the centre of the museum. This tower is the only remnant of the first religious kibbuz "Sa'ad" (), which was reconstructed 1 km away from this place. The whole museum is designed to illustrate the settlers' attitude "faith and work (together with fighting)". Exhibits on the ground floor serve to show this attitude: During the foundation ceremony, a Torah scroll is solemnly carried into the kibbuz. Other photos show people praying and participating in religious celebrations or involved in hard building work. In a reconstructed command post, you can find a rifle lying beside a small Torah scroll. On the first floor a film (also in English) is shown, in which they thank God for His assistance in the successful defence of the kibbuz. For instance they recognize that it was due to God's help that the first shot fired at random by the only gun in the kibbuz hit the command post of the Egyptians and caused them to retreat overestimating the Israeli fire power and intelligence. On the top of the observation tower from which you can see Gaza and the Gaza strip there is an observation table. This table was designed to record the movements of the troops of the enemy without having to violate the Shabbat commandment which forbids writing: the times of the day were shown on the horizontal axle of the table, the different kinds of troops displayed on the vertical axle. The observations made were recorded by hanging rings on hooks, the number of rings on a specific hook indicated, for example, the number of the tanks observed. To reach the museum take the road 232 which branches off from the main road 25 (Netivot - Gaza). Near the kibbuz Sa'ad, directly beside a petrol station, turn off towards Kfar Aza. Several hundreds of meters further, turn left to take a narrow road. At this point, you can see the small observation tower on top of a hill. There are no fixed opening hours. Before your visit, call Tel. (052) 3726644, 08-6800403.

Mizpe Revivim is an especially interesting museum. In 1943, it was established as an agricultural testing centre and named after Micah 5:7 ("showers"). (See below chapter 2.) Now, the whole area of the former agricultural testing centre is a museum comprising the centre's outdoor areas and buildings. This museum offers a lot of information about the successful undertaking to cultivate the Negev desert, which is also a fulfilment of biblical prophecies. Furthermore, the extensive fortifications still exist which proved to be very effective during the Egyptian offensive in the War of Independence in 1948. Among other things, there is a former military hospital, which was installed in an old Byzantine cavern. Next to it, you can visit completely furnished residential buildings, which date back to the beginnings of the kibbutz. In the so-called "exhibition room" in the former testing centre's main section, you can also read a quotation from Isaiah 61:4 in Hebrew: "And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations." Furthermore, there are original transport planes which, during the War of Independence, supplied the kibbutzim which were surrounded by the enemy. Visiting this museum takes several hours. In the Visitor's Building near the entrance, a very informative film is shown in Hebrew, English, Spanish and German.
To get to the museum Mizpe Revivim, take the road no. 222, which is located southwest of Be'er Sheva. You need not pass through today's kibbutz Revivim, but you can take the direct access road marked "Mizpe Revivim", which turns off the main road no. 222 a little north of kibbutz Revivim. Mizpe Revivim is open from Sunday to Thursday, from 8 am to 4 pm, on Friday from 8 am to 12 am.

The Border Police Memorial and Heritage Center is located in the western Carmel mountains. It is not easy to find. Driving on road 65 (Afula - Hadera), you turn south at the "Zomet Iron" junction. Only 20 m after Zomet Iron you have to turn left (eastwards). Now you drive northwards through a tunnel under road 65. You reach the memorial immediately after the tunnel (map with directions). The long wall of the memorial is inscribed with a quotation in Hebrew from Jeremiah 15:20: (God speaks:) "And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee."
Recently the border troop museum has been opened near the memorial. This very interesting museum shows the history and achievements of the border troops, which are made up of all nationalities living in Israel (including a high percentage of Druzes). It gives you an idea of the new challenges due to terrorism originating from the areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority. Furthermore several films are shown there, available in Hebrew and English such as the entire documentation presented. The museum was founded in commemoration of all border troop soldiers killed in action including the Christian Zionist Yonathan Vermeulen, who was killed on 29th December 2000.
Sergeant Yonathan Vermeulen grew up in the Christian moshav Nes Ammim in Western Galilee. In 1975, at the age of four, he came to Israel from the Netherlands together with his parents, who are Christian Zionists. An official Jewish National Fund (KKL) poster advertising tree planting in Israel shows little Yonathan planting a small tree. In 1990, as Nes Ammim accepts volonteers only for a period of several years, the Vermeulen family returned to the Netherlands. Yonathan, however, felt that he did not belong there; in fact he was longing very much to return to Israel.
After several obstacles had been overcome, the Israeli army Zahal fulfilled his dearest wish, that is to serve as a regular Zahal soldier in a special border troop pioneer unit which is exposed to particularly high risks. His job included the defusing of Arab bombs. On 29th December 2000, Yonathan Vermeulen, together with another soldier, had to defuse a roadside bomb in the Gaza Strip. This time, however, Palestinian "Intifada" terrorists were lying in ambush, and as the bomb defusing team was trying to render the bomb safe, they triggered off one bomb and then another one. Thus 29-year-old Yonathan was killed immediately. He was buried in the kibbutz Hanita, which just on the Lebanese border has made numerous sacrifices for Zionism and the State of Israel for many years.
The funeral was held in a really ecumenical way: a Dutch catholic priest held the service together with a military rabbi. The rabbi sang Jewish prayers. Yonathan received all military honours from his comrades. The kibbutz inhabitants said that they had felt honoured by the ceremony taking place near their homes. Megiel, Yonathans mother, said: "this is the Holy Land. We have always felt we have a special relationship with it; indeed after what has happened, we have a kind of blood relationship which will never be destroyed. We are proud of Yonathan." In the museum, feel free to ask for Yonathans personal file. It is accessible to every visitor, and contains numerous moving pictures and documents regarding his life.
The museum is open from Monday to Thursday, from 9 am to 4 pm Entrance is free of charge. Fax. no. 06 6355749.

The memorial of the 7th brigade on the Golan Hights near Qazrin-Junction on the road 87 (In the Yom Kippur war, the Syrian troops advanced as far as this place) is inscribed with a quotation from Isaiah 66:15: "He (the Lord) will come with fire, and his chariots like a whirlwind."

The Memorial of the 188th ("Barak") Brigade is situated in the Golan Heights at Road 91 near the entrance to Nahal Gilbon . It is inscribed with a verse from a Hebrew song, citing Jeremiah 17:8: "A person is like a tree planted by water, seeking roots."

Below mount Avital at road 98 opposite Quneitra You'll find the memorial of the tank brigade Koah-Nati. There You can read the Hebrew sentence, written by Hanna Szenes: "A voice called me and I came; I came, because a voice called me." Hanna Szenes went back to Nazi-Europe by choice to save persecuted Jews. She wrote also a prayer-poem, which became a famous Israeli song: "Eli, eli" ("My God, my God"). Therefore the meaning of the sentence is, that someone heard God's voice and follwed him to defend human lives.

The memorial for the Israeli soldiers, who fell at the bunker system of Tel Faher, is situated in the north of the Golan Heights, just above kibbuz Shamir. There You'll find on the memorial stone 2 Bible verses from 2 Samuel: "They were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions." (1:23); "How are the heroes fallen!" (1:27).

On 4th February 1997 a heavy collision of 2 helicopters took place. The helicopters crashed, blazing fiercely, near the Kibbuz Shear Yashuv .
The text from the prophets prescribed for the week when the accident happened was Isaiah 7, 1-6. Shear Yashuv (a son of Isaiah after which the a/m kibbuz was named) is mentioned in the bible only three times. Isaiah 7, 1-6 also speaks of Aramean (= Syrian) enemies ("the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria", verse 4); in fact, the helicopters were to fight the Syrian-backed Hisbollah. Finally, the text also mentions two smoking firebrands such as were the two helicopters when they crashed. These correspondences between the accident and the a/m quotation show that it was God's intention to comfort Israel with His a/m word in this critical situation and to make clear that He will protect Israel whatever happens. He also says in the a/m text with regard to the Aramean (= Syrian) threat: "Be quiet! Fear not, don't be fainthearted for the two tails of these smoking firebrands." (verse 4)
In fact, all the 73 soldiers in the helicopter died in the accident, but by a miracle none of the kibbuz inhabitants was even injured. Despite the terrible deaths of the soldiers the kibbuz inhabitants showed their faith in God's help and protection by thanking Him for having preserved all of them and by erecting in the place of the accident a sign inscribed with the following quotation from Psalm 91:11: "For he will give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways."
To find this place, enter the kibbuz Shear Yashuv; then turn left approx. 100 m behind the gate, following the first street; about 50 m further away, you can see the memorial on your left-hand side. To get to the place where the other helicopter crashed, drive along the left side of the cemetary of the nearby kibbuz Dafna.

The route to the crash site of the second helicopter is perfectly signposted with Helicopter Memorial. Turn off the main road 99 between the kibbuzim HaGoshrim and Dafna, then drive by the cemetery of kibbuz Dafna in order to arrive at an artistically fashioned area with a creek and memorial stones for the soldiers killed there. The main memorial stone is inscribed with a quotation from the bible: "They are joined fast to one another; they cling together and cannot be parted." (Job 41,17).

An Israeli, 75 years old, writes on the occasion of the 70th birthday of Israel: "I hardly recognize the poor country of my childhood, where most people could not speak Hebrew and we depended on donations and lownes for importation of food. Reality is beyond the wildest dreams of the founding fathers. God's miracles are breath taking."
