Modern development of
the Dead Sea region was
started about 50 years ago
by a Jewish engineer from
Siberia who--recognized
the tremendous chemical
concentration in the Dead
Sea. Today the Dead Sea
Works are extracting
many chemicals from the
sea, the most important of
these being potash, brom-
ine and magnesium brines,
which are used in fertilizer
and fumigant industries in
many parts of the world.

Seeking Therapeutic Mineral Water

KE
KE 1-4960

These bathers are relaxing on one of the Dead Sea beaches
after enjoying the therapeutic qualities of the mineral waters of
the sea. Arad, the urban center of the Dead Sea area, is popular
for its weather. Tourists from all over the world who suffer
from asthmatic diseases and allergies find the dry and pollen-
free air as a means of relief from those ailments. Although Arad
is noted for the hot springs, mineral waters and the dry air, It
also is known for its variety of hotels, swimming pools, shop-
ping centers and entertainment.

The Dead Sea is alive. To
some, the lake located at the
lowest spot in the earth's
surface is an exotic, en-
thralling place, unique in its
fierce desert beauty. To oth-
ers, it is an unsurpassed
therapeutic center where
aches, pains and skin di-
seases have been helped.
The -brooding rock for-
tress of Ma-§ada has at-
tracted thousands of visitors
to its heroic heights where,
according to Josephus, a
handful held off the might
of Rome • for years, finally
choosing death at their own
hands, rather than surren-
der.
The Push oasis of Ein
Gedi, verdant in contrast
with the desert scrub ar-
ound it, houses a kibutz, a
health resort, a • youth hos-
tel, a nature study center
and the splashing waters of
David's fountain recalling
that a King once sought re-
fuge here. This is an invita-
tion to a lively Dead Sea
holiday.

The Dead Sea is the
deepest point in the de-
pression extending from
Syria to the heart of Af-
rica. This depre-ssion was
created when the crust - of
the earth was in its final
stages of formation.
Traces of this geological
happening can be found in
the bibical story about
Sodom -and Gomorrah
(Genesis 19). •

The lake, which is about
50 miles long and close to
1;300 feet below sea-level, is
flanked on both sides by
mountains. To the east are.
the mountains of Moab, to
the west the hills of Jerusa-
lem and Judah. The peaks of
Judean hills reach an alti-
tude of 3,500 feet.
Urban center of the re-
gion is the town of Arad,
about 2,000 feet above the
Mediteranean, it is 3,300
feet above the level of the
Dead Sea yet the distance
between them is 10 miles.
The entire region from
Arad, all the way to the
Dead Sea is an arid land
with very few rainy days in

The mineral springs, like
the sweet water springs, are
usually situated in the del-
tas of the dry river beds. In
these deltas you will also
find ruins of old fortresses. -
These old fortesses called
Mezudot of Mezad were
built against Invaders from
across the lake. One of them
