A stunning aerial tour of the ancient land
Sacred sites and natural wonders in all their visual glory
Make an aerial pilgrimage to Israel, the world’s only Jewish state and Holy Land to three major religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Stunning high-definition footage showcases Israel in all its diverse glory, flying over sites where Jewish rebels gave their lives; where Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans built outposts of their empires; and where Jesus Christ lived and died. Witness the magnificence of the country’s many holy sites, including the Western Wall, the Temple Mount, and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, alongside exotic seaside resorts and the austere beauty of the Judean desert.
With informative narration by Israeli American violinist Itzhak Perlman and ethnic music, Visions of Israel presents the natural and historical wonders of this sacred landscape.

Included is Jerusalem to Tel Aviv; Noah to today's fast paced locals; Mediterranean Sea to religious mountain peaks; farms to desert; brides to soldiers; Biblical to 21 Century architecture. The Sea of Galilee from the air is breathtaking. The Dead Sea Scroll site is significant as well as the scenes surrounding the Dead Sea itself. There is so much unexpected color there, the lowest point of the world. You see the 5000 year old Acre (Akko) port, and Masada, and of course, the Old City of Jerusalem. Just too much to list it all. Fantastic helicopter-mounted camera work, which also has unbelievable zoom capability. Awesome footage, like all "Visions" DVDs.
This DVD provides history & locations related to several religions. "Visions of Israel" is perfect for the religious pilgrim that cannot travel to Israel. Also enjoyable is the musical background; both vocal and instrumental music in forms from classical to folk. The narration is educational.
A bonus added segment of footage (almost 1/2 hour) includes more music background but no narration, except the written captions of site names. We were able to make use of CC and have all of the narration also in print on the TV screen for the main feature. One can use the bonus segment as a great musical background for an office or home, just by playing the DVD's bonus.
Check out all of the "Visions of Series", all excellent, all educational, informative, musical, and beautiful. All Aerial HD.
Visions of Israel managed to provide an enormous range of the country and people by air and on the ground. It covered more than I would have thought possible. I was able to get a better understanding of where sites are located related to other sites.
The bottom line is this. I 'know' Israel better after having watched Visions of Israel.
After enjoying this one, I bought Visions of New York City. I am scheduled to travel through there very briefly on my way to Israel. I want to be familiar enough with what is there so I'll be able to know exactly what I want to see during my time there.
UPDATE: I thought I had lost my copy of this DVD and I enjoyed it so much that I was planning on buying another one. However, I found it and watched it again last night, enjoying it even more than before, 'pausing' it a number of times to enjoy parts of it when I just wanted more time to enjoy it. Excellent job, Visions!
most visually satisfying to watch.
