ISRAEL preserves the Holy Land for All  

Holy Sites in ISRAEL Include:

Western Wall

The Western Wall, located in the Old City of Jerusalem, is a remnant of the ancient wall that surrounded the Jewish Temple's courtyard and is one of the most sacred sites in Judaism.

Bah'ai World Center

The Bahá'í World Centre, located in Haifa, is the spiritual and administrative heart of the Bahá'í community, comprising holy sites of the Bahá'í Faith.

Church of the Holy Sepulchre

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, located in the Old City of Jerusalem, is venerated as the Hill of Calvary where Jesus was crucified, and is said to also contain the place where Jesus was buried (the sepulchre).

Dome of the Rock

The Dome of the Rock, located in the Old City of Jerusalem, is an important Islamic shrine adjacent to Al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam.

Why does Israel matter? Because without the State of Israel, the Holy Land and its religious sites would be at risk today; because without Israel, innovations we take for granted might never have been discovered.

Israel preserves the Holy Land for all people regardless of race, religion, color, creed, gender or sexual orientation. Millions of people visit the Holy Land each year in complete safety and freedom. There is no other country in the Middle East whose governing laws unequivocally guarantee religious freedom and where all religious sites are protected, preserved, safeguarded and maintained.

In this time of turmoil in the Middle East, Israel stands out as the only stable, free and democratic nation in this area of the world.

The world has also benefited from contributions that might not have been developed without the existence of Israel. Innovations have come out of Israel in areas such as health care, technology, agriculture, education, security, environment, biomedicine, counterterrorism, and culture. That's why Israel matters!
