Editorial Reviews

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than just a visual dessert. June 23, 2010
Better than chocolate cheesecake. Perfection of High Defition aerial visuals. The 'Visions of Series' is enhanced by this new DVD. It takes you to Israel in a manner unavailable in any other way. It also provides history, culture, music, and...well...everything but the smell and taste of this interesting country.

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.

I've been buying all kinds of books and movies about Israel to prepare myself for an upcoming first-time visit there. I hesitated to buy this one because I thought it would be difficult to see the 'real' Israel if all the footage is from the view of a helicoptor. I didn't want just a fly-over. After reading the previous reviews I did buy it, and I'm so glad I did!

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Vision of Israel March 15, 2011
Verified Purchase
'Visions of Israel' is still another excellent addition to the 'Visions' series. It is simply the best video on Israel I have seen and is perfect for tourists who want a memento of an Israeli trip. Most other videos wonder aimlessly, are disorganized, or insert pointless political messages. This one is your traveler's keepsake.

As seen on public TV, Visions of Israel is a gorgeous documentary offering airborne footage of Israel's holy sites, including the Western Wall, the Temple Mount, and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Panoramic scenes of exotic seaside resorts and the fierce natural presence of the desert further enhance this extraordinary tour, the next best thing to observing Israel's landscape in person. Bonus footage not originally shown on public television enhances this wondrous and unforgettable DVD. 78 min., 16:9 aspect ratio, widescreen, closed captioned.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's like taking a trip to Israel. July 11, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is so fabulous. It is my dream to take a trip to Israel but was hoping I could find a travelogue that could give me a good idea of what it's like, not only the religious sites but the modern city. This is it. You will be astonished at what the Jewish people have done with this country. It is not only historic but modern and beautiful as well. I highly recommend it.

It has been more than 25 years since I visited Israel. This DVD provides a look at not only the past but the present and future of this fascinating country. Truely an exhilarating DVD in the Visions series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bird's eye view of Israel May 31, 2012
Verified Purchase
Like the whole Vsions series this was a great video production. I was just a little disappointed because I was expecting more in the way of Holy Land visits. There are some but not what I was expecting. It says "Israel" and that is what you see and very good shots of the major cities. It is one you may look at over and over but I felt it cover areas I was not that interested in. I will be looking for another dvd with more Holy Land oriented scenes which I will watch more often.
