Photographer's Note

It is belived that the ancient city Modiin has been located on the way to Jerusalem. The exact place of the city is unknown untill today. There are alot of ideas about the actual position of the city. Modiin was built by the Macabis. The name Modiin is named after the word "Modia" (informs), at the jewish holidays, fire has been set up on the mountains and that has informed the people about the holiday.
The modern Modiin of today is located between Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem. The population of the city is about 37,000 people. On 2001 Modiin has been called a city, which it was just a village before.
Today Moddin is a symbol for greatness and bravery because of the Macabis rebellion that has been set up against the romans 2000 years ago.
