July 12th 2017

July is no time to be bored, so if you are heading to Israel this month, you’re in luck! Check out some of these exciting events and attractions that you can enjoy, and keep your summer hotter than ever.

The Sea Israel: Gottesman Aquarium

You’ve probably already been to the amazing Tisch Family Biblical Zoo (and if you haven’t, then pick a cooler day, and go!) It’s an incredible 62-acre zoo that hosts hundreds of colorful, exotic, and interesting animals you don’t want to miss. Well, now there’s another great reason to visit the Biblical Zoo; the Gottesman Aquarium has finally arrived! The long-awaited opening of this aquarium has received a lot of attention, and now tourists can, at last, enjoy this 6,000 sq. meter aquarium, complete with 30 tanks and hundreds of varieties of fish life to behold. Hurry though, you need to buy tickets in advance if you want to see this amazing underwater world this month!


If photography is where it’s at for you, then you need to head over to Ammunition Hill to check out the finalists from the JerusaLENS International Photography Challenge Competition. Featuring the 100 best picks from the photo competition, the exhibit highlights the best talent from all over the world, able to capture the unique and indescribable beauty of Jerusalem.

An astounding 14,500 pictures were submitted from over 84 countries. After being narrowed down via an online voting process, the current exhibit represents the largest online collection of Jerusalem photography to date. Entrance is free but catch it now because the exhibit will only be open until August 6th.

Soul of the Land


And if you like that, then you’re going to love the Soul of the Land exhibit at the Jerusalem Theater. The exhibit, open now until July 20th, features the book “Passage to Israel”, an epic pictorial narration of life, culture, and nature around Israel. The tale is told through 210 pages of pictures snapped by 35 Israel-born photographers, and it has been expertly compiled for a fascinating panoramic view of Israeli culture.

Don’t forget to hit up these amazing indoor attractions all year round.
