Unofficial Guide
Roadside Vistas
Israeli Links
Mosaic Home

A couple of months ago our friends living now in USA visited Israel. Of course, we toured them across the country and showed them what we could squeese into two weeks' time. They were rather enthusiastic about what they saw, and told us: "You see, we were sure before that Israel is no more that a patch of land covered with military camps and trenches".

Just thinking of how many people still have such notions about Israel, I felt I must try to change their mind. Of course, The Israeli Mosaic is a humble and non-scientific site, and the choice of places may seem eclectic. Still, some of them apparently don't have detailed on-line descriptions in the Net.

The Unofficial Guide tells about some of my favorite places - their history and what you can see today. A glossary and chronological tables are provided for your convenience. I added nothing to what I knew and saw by myself and found in the books, but of course I cannot promise that the descriptions are complete. Unexpectedly for me, it turned out that the best way to learn history (or anything else) is to compose an appropriate Web page. If you are looking for more respectable Internet resources on the subject, it's still worth reading the Guide pages - you will find links to them.

The Roadside Vistas show some middle-of-the-way views that are not connected to specific places (and so I couldn't just add them to the Guide). The variety of the Israeli landscape is well illustrated here - for example, the distance from the field of anemones to the complete wilderness near Arad is hardly an hour drive.

IsraeLinks is a collection of Israeli resources (and a couple of foreign ones that are closely connected to Israel). Here you can find respectable and full-size Israeli servers and resource directories. The collection is classified by subjects. It is relatively short, so it will not take you a long time to visit all referenced sites.

Hope you will enjoy your visit at the Israeli Mosaic.
