The Dead Sea

Dead Sea – From Shore to Shore

The Dead Sea is drying up. In the past decade, its water level has dropped by nearly 50 feet and its surface has been reduced by a third. The Dead Sea has always been a source of natural deposits in the use of humankind. The Asphalt chunks that floated on its surface were used for medicine and embalming, and during the Second Temple period, the oases around its shores were planted with dates and balsam, an important source of income for the kingdoms around the sea. It was such a fertile area that Lot, brother of Abraham chose it as his inheritance. The cliffs and caves around its shores attracted outlaws and dissidents: King David, the Essenes, the rebels against Rome, and Byzantine monks.  

The Dead Sea issue of ERETZ Magazine deals not only with the western shores but also the eastern, Jordanian side. The eastern shore has an impressive history and ancient sites and magnificent natural landscapes: canyons flowing with water, hot springs, and beautiful oases.
