WATCH: Dead Sea Walking, a ToI Original Video

Dear ToI Community member,

We’re thrilled to share with you the first episode of a new Times of Israel original documentary video series: ‘Into the Land.’ As a ToI Community member, you’ll have first access to these videos before they’re released to our general readership.

In ‘Into the Land‘ we explore a topic in each of three fields — environment, history and Jewish/Arab relations — to illuminate both the complexity of that story and the deeper issues it reveals about Israeli society and culture.

This first episode in the series is entitled ‘Dead Sea Walking’ and addresses the state of the Dead Sea, which has shrunk by half since 1976. We explore why the Dead Sea is declining, why nothing is being done about it, and what all this has to do with a manufacturing conglomerate that is reluctant to pay taxes. Watch it by clicking below:

We’d love to hear your feedback on this video and series. To share your thoughts, please email us at

Thank you most sincerely for your support of The Times of Israel, which enables us to produce enlightening editorial projects such as ‘Into the Land.’
