What Was The Highest Temperature in Israel?

God has blessed the Jewish people with a “land flowing with milk and honey” (Deuteronomy 26:9) and has commanded us to “rejoice in the bounty of the Lord” (Jeremiah 31:12).

Even with how picturesque the Holy Land truly is, the summer months can be uncomfortable — even oppressive — as temperatures soar in Jerusalem and all across Israel. It’s a little known fact that one of the hottest places on earth is actually in Israel.

Can you guess the highest temperature EVER recorded in Israel?

109 Degrees

119 Degrees

129 Degrees

It’s hard to believe that Israel has reached 129 degrees!
