Tomb of the Virgin (Jehoshaphatova Valley)
Christian Shrine Tomb of the Virgin
Empress Elena (mother of Emperor Constantine the First) built a church in 326, which was able to survive unchanged until the XI century. It was of great importance, since it was erected directly above the tomb of the Virgin. After a while, on the site of the ruins left from the church, the temple of the daughter of Baldwin II Melisenda began to rise. There she was buried. The Sixth Ecumenical Council decided to open the tomb. As a result of the work done, funeral sheets and a belt were found.

The temple itself is located underground. From the entrance there is a wide staircase made of stone, which has 48 steps. The church is built in the shape of a cross. Inside the building is a small chapel and the tomb of the Virgin. Continue reading

Red Sea, beautiful Eilat

And yet it came, the day of departure to Moscow! But I really wanted to stay in Eilat, even for at least a week.

The first minutes after arriving at this Israeli resort are somewhat reminiscent of a contrast shower: cold – hot, cold – hot. Cold (relatively cool cabin of the airbus) – hot (heated air of the runway) – cold (air-conditioned interior of a comfortable bus) – hot (short run from the bus step to the hotel door) – cold (phew, again – air conditioning, cool …).

The pianist in the lobby rapturously raises “Black Eyes” and “Kalinka.” Yes, thoroughly prepared for the arrival of guests from Russia in Eilat. And they decided to show our group, composed of Moscow journalists and employees of the travel agency “INTERGARANT”, as they say, “goods face.” Continue reading

Want to take a walk in Israel? Be truthful and sincere

The consular service of the Embassy of the State of Israel in Russia is the very place that no person can get around who decides to go to this country for one or another need. Here, of course, it is always crowded, bustling, noisy. And because of that – a little stupid. The first time you get here you need to overcome confusion, get together, group, concentrate before starting your own business. Apparently, understanding the feelings of “clients,” the consular department adviser Yitzchak KARMEL-KAGAN began a conversation with the i correspondent from complaining about cramped working conditions. Say, you yourself see how difficult it is for us to serve everyone, to deliver information on innovations to our clients on time (see “i” b 35 (194), p. 15).

– Even when such a procedure as, say, issuing visas or issuing invitations changes in the direction of relief, people take this with caution. Precisely because they were not notified in advance. Continue reading
