This book presents a historical survey of the development of Jewish holy places in the State of Israel. The second chapter focuses on the years 1948--1967, when Israelis could not visit historical sacred sites such as the Western Wall of the Temple Mount, the Tomb of Rachel on the outskirts of Bethlehem, the Cave of the Machpelah (the tombs of the Patriarchs) in Hebron, and more. As a result, an alternative "holy space" developed in western Jerusalem and elsewhere around sites such as the Tomb of King David on Mt. Zion (the Israeli-held part outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem), the Cave of Elijah on Mt. Carmel, and more.
The author devotes the concluding chapter to the Six-Day War and its influence on the holy places in the State of Israel, now that they were once more accessible to Jews.
The text is in Hebrew.
