The Only Magic that Exists is the Magic that YOU bring!

The Holy Land. Eretz Yisrael. The state of Israel.

Israel is known to be a place of magic. The Holiest sites in the world- The Wailing Wall for the Jews, The Holy Sepulchre, the places where Jesus was born, died and performed his miracles, the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa mosque, Masada, Tomb of the Patriarchs, Mystical Tzfat….all of these places in then some are packed into one tiny little magical country: Israel. Additionally, Tel Aviv’s mythical nightlife is known to be a magical place t party at night.

I hate to say it, but it is all untrue. For Jewish people, Jerusalem has been so hyped in our minds, that being there is anti-climatic; it does not feel holy or sacred at first. Jerusalem takes time to grow on a Jew. Neither does Masada. As for Christians and Muslims, I am not one so I do not know how they feel when experiencing the Holy Land for the first time.

There is no magic in Tel Aviv. The bars offer happy hours for college students and Tel Aviv has the same slimly circle of weirdos that congregate at the beach and snooty locals that own million-dollar real estate and that know they are at the top that any beach community has.
