Jerusalem its capital and worldwide center of religion, though the UN does not recognize it as so, claiming it to be Tel Aviv. Hebrew and Arabic are the official languages, although many other languages are spoken throughout the country, including English, French, German, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Spanish and Yiddish.
Israel is small in size but has a varied landscape from the fertile hills in Galilee with Mount Hermon and Golan to the Negev Desert and Eliat on the Red Sea. The Great Rift Valley goes from the River Jordan sources to the Dead Sea; this is the lowest point in the world, then onto the Red Sea and Kinneret (Sea of Galilee), which is in fact Israel’s biggest freshwater lake.
