JERUSALEM WEATHER

In the Bible, God sends down from the heavens rain to sustain, manna to miraculously nourish, and burning “fire and brimstone” to eradicate evil from the Land (Genesis 19:24). The sulphuric acid that destroyed Sodom and Gemorrah left its mark in the Dead Sea region. In 1911, Moshe Novomeysky, a European industrialist, visited the Dead Sea for the first time and understood its potential as a treasure trove for minerals, phosphates, sulfurs and potash. He created the Palestine Potash Company which would later turn into one of Israel’s most important export companies—Dead Sea Works. Thousands of years later, the Bible is alive in the Land of Israel!
