Bio

I am a licensed tour guide in the Land of Israel, certified by the Israel Ministry of tourism. I Guide groups and individuals throughout the Land of Israel. I am also a graduate of Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Haifa. After a career as an entrepreneur and a businessman, I decided to turn my passion for the Land of Israel into a career. 

I am the author of the book Know the Holy Land. This book is a comprehensive Hebrew-English dictionary and the first of its kind and contains about 4100 entries. This is the first attempt to create a professional glossary in Hebrew and English covering topics such as geography, geology, archeology, architecture, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, site names, flora, fauna, and many other issues.

The book is intended to serve as a bilingual dictionary, professional glossary, and a tool for those interested in knowing the land, studying the Land of Israel, tour guides and tourists who travel through it.     

Keywords: geography, geology, archeology, architecture, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, flora, fauna, History, Zionism, Bible,
