Christmas in Bethlehem

25 December, 2011 We went to Bethlehem (yes, THE Bethlehem) on Christmas Eve to share the experience with you. You can see some photos on the blog and more on our Facebook page.

Christmas Greetings from the Holy Land

21 December, 2011 Joining Christian communities all over the world, Christians in Israel will be honoring the birth of Jesus this coming Sunday. Adding to the spirit of joy, 30,000 Christian pilgrims from all over the world are expected to visit Israel during the 2011 Christmas season.

We want to commit to preserving the heritage that God has granted to us in Israel. Not only the spiritual foundations that touch the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths, but also the historical landmarks and natural beauty of this unique place.

Modin - Maccabees and story of Hannukah

16 December, 2011 We are blessed to be able to use the Bible (and in this case, apocrypha) as our guide-book in Israel.

The Jewish holiday of Hannukah is around the corner, and we looked to Modiin, where the heroic part of the story of Hannukah starts.

“In those days arose Mattathias the son of John, the son of Simeon, a priest of the sons of Joarib, from Jerusalem, and dwelt in Modin.” (1Mac 2:1, KJV).

Resveratrol is one of the reasons behind the French Paradox

12 December, 2011 Red wine is noted for containing resveratrol, an antioxidant compound that neutralizes free radicals. A daily dose of resveratrol in red wine may also contribute to the lower rates of heart disease in France. The French paradox describes France’s cultural penchant for foods high in saturated fats and cholesterol--such as beef and full-fat dairy products like cheese, butter and cream—but without an expected parallel in high rates of heart disease and obesity. A noteworthy divergence between France and America is a marked difference in wine consumption. Wine is drunk frequently at the afternoon and evening meals in France

Ancient port of Jaffa - mentioned in the Book of Jonah

9 December, 2011 It is amazing to be able to walk in the footsteps of the Bible. Here are photos of the Old City and ancient port of Jaffa. Or, in Hebrew/Arabic - Yafo. Or, as per the NIV translation, Joppa. You can really feel the history here. Take a look here, and there are more photos on the Galilee Nutritionals Facebook page.

Pomegranates - One of nature's best antioxidants

4 December, 2011 The virtues of pomegranates--the beautiful, ruby-colored fruits cultivated in Israel since Biblical times--go far beyond taste. Pomegranates offer nutritional benefits that protect the body and promote health. We’ve chosen them to play a starring role in Galilee Nutritionals’ Super Antioxidant formula. Four separate plant-based chemicals, called polyphenols, are packed into pomegranates. These polyphenols can lower blood pressure and prevent cholesterol from turning into artery-clogging plaque.
