Abraham, his son Yitshak Isaac , and grandson Jacob Israel are referred to as the patriarchs of the Israelites. All three patriarchs lived in the Land of Canaan, which later came to be known as the Land of Israel.
The name Israel derives from the name given to Jacob Genesis His 12 sons were the kernels of 12 tribes that later developed into the Jewish nation. So, the names Israel, Israeli or Jewish refer to people of the same origin. Soon after the Exodus, Moses transmitted to the people of this newly emerging nation, the Torah and the Ten Commandments Exodus Chapter After 40 years in the Sinai desert, Moses led them to the Land of Israel, which is cited in The Bible as the land promised by G-d to the descendants of the patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob Genesis The people of modern-day Israel share the same language and culture shaped by the Jewish heritage and religion passed through generations starting with the founding father Abraham ca.

Declaration of independence of the modern State of Israel was announced on the day that the last British forces left Israel May 14, This marked the beginning of the War of Independence. Arab states have jointly waged four full-scale wars against Israel:.
Despite the numerical superiority of the Arab armies, Israel defended itself each time and won. After each war Israeli army withdrew from most of the areas it captured see maps. This is unprecedented in World history and shows Israel's willingness to reach peace even at the risk of fighting for its very existence each time anew.

Written by: Israel Hanukoglu, Ph. Quote from Charles Krauthammer - The Weekly Standard, May 11, "Israel is the very embodiment of Jewish continuity: It is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name, speaks the same language, and worships the same God that it did 3, years ago. The Greeks generally allowed the Jews to run their state. But, during the rule of the king Antiochus IV, the Temple was desecrated.

Marriage in ancient Israel was very different from marriage today. Although there is a great deal we do not know about Israelite marriage, the biblical texts that speak about it tell us that many Israelite marriage customs were unlike those of modern western societies.

It is hard to know how common polygamy, which entailed a husband being married to more than one woman, really was in ancient Israel. Also, the evidence suggests that compared to women, men had more control over whom they married. For example, Samson chooses his own wife in Judg 14 , even though his parents disapprove of the match.

Hebrew manuscripts are considered to be invaluable documents and artefacts of Jewish culture and history. Research on Hebrew manuscript culture is progressing rapidly and therefore its topics, methods and questions need to be enunciated and reflected upon.

Красная, белая и синяя. Я нашел. В его голове смешались мысли о кольце, о самолете Лирджет-60, который ждал его в ангаре, и, разумеется, о Сьюзан. В тот момент, когда он поравнялся с сиденьем, на котором сидела девушка, и подумал, что именно ей скажет, автобус проехал под уличным фонарем, на мгновение осветившим лицо обладателя трехцветной шевелюры.
