Photo Friday: A Dip in the Dead Sea

David Ben-Gurion and Eliezer Kaplan at Dead Sea, August 1, 1940 (Photo: GPO)

Even before the modern state of Israel was founded, the Zionists who would help create the Jewish state loved living in the Holy Land. In this photo, taken on August 1, 1940, Israel's first Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion and fellow founding father Eliezer Kaplan relax at the Dead Sea. Shabbat shalom, friends.
