 “It isChilean Miners in Israel amazing to be here, in this place” said the miners who were invited on a Pilgrimage of Thanks following the 68-day of suffering underground.  Israel’ Ministry of Tourism, Stas Misezhnikov invited the miners so they will have the opportunity to have a thanksgiving to GOD in the very holy place of Jerusalem. During the pilgrimage tour the miners visited the Visa Delarosa, The Old City of Jerusalem, Mount of Olives, The Western Wall, Bethlehem, The Jordan River, Mount of the beatitudes and many other sites. “We thank the people of Israel for praying for us and for the hospitality we received…and we thank you for the opportunity to visit Jerusalem and Bethlehem and immerse ourselves in the waters of the River Jordan and the Dead Sea. We take unforgettable memories with us back to Chile”, wrote the 25 miners in a letter to the Tourism Ministry. After receiving the miners’ letter the Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov said: “The emotional pilgrimage of the Chilean miners shows the many religious sites in the Holy Land and served to highlight the exciting and unique spiritual and religious experience that awaits believers from all faiths. The visit, which took place during a time of instability in the Middle East, positioned Israel not only as a safe and attractive tourism destination in itself, but also as an island of stability in the region.”

Letters and More... The Story of the Alphabet

Letters A new exhibition at the Tower of David Museum has opened to the public. As Jerusalem is a mosaic of peoples and cultures, it is also a blend of alphabets and languages. Until writing was common, communication was based on voices, drawing, smoke, fire and drums used to carry the messages from one place to another. Although the languages developed in different places they share a single source: A system of signs that was born in Canaan, the land of the meeting of cultures.
