What Country is Bet Shemesh in?
The place in central Israel, located halfway from the Mediterranean Sea to Jerusalem, is already mentioned several times in the Bible. In the immediate vicinity of the historic Bet Shemesh – English: “House of the sun” – the new Bet Shemesh is founded in 1952. As a development center confirmed by the state of Israel, the city has since expanded due to the influx of Jewish immigrants, initially from North Africa and the Middle East, and in recent years especially from the former Soviet Union.
South of the former city center, generous new residential districts with condominiums and single-family houses are emerging in recent years. In a few years, the population will rise to over 100,000.
