The Jordan River, one of Israel’s foremost tourist attractions, flows from Israel’s northern tip down to the Dead Sea.

Drinking water is one of the Jewish state’s most prized natural resources. During the early stages of its modern-day history, Israel often faced water shortages, but today Israel excels at water conservation.

The Jordan River bears special significance to both Judaism and Christianity. The Jewish people’s crossing of the Jordan was the final step in their journey from Egypt to the Promised Land. It symbolizes the passage from slavery to freedom.
