Modern Israel:
Birth of a Nation

Walking around modern-day Israel, it’s easy to forget that the country was only established in 1948. The nation’s birth was nothing less than miraculous; a result of unimaginable sacrifice, hard work, ingenuity, vision, luck, providence, and above all - tikva - “hope”, the name of its national anthem.

Understand the plight of the early Zionist pioneers as you visit places such as: the Atlit detention camps where the British confined recent Holocaust survivors, Akko prison - the site of the world’s largest jail break, and the underground Ayalon bullet factory. Get a strategic understanding of the struggle for independence as you visit the bunkers of the Golan Heights, and the Latrun hilltop overlooking and controlling the road connecting Jerusalem to Tel Aviv. Walk in the shoes of Israel’s modern-day patriarchs, Begin, Ben-Gurion and more, at the Palmach museum, Independence Hall and Sde Boker.
