The "from Joshua to Rabin" route explores the stories of two leaders, one from the biblical era, Joshua, who was born in Egypt, became Moses assistant and military leader, the one to cross the Jordan river with the people of Israel and lead them to conquer the land of Cannaan. Rabin was born in Jerusalem and in 1948, at the age of 26 became the commander of the most important front in the 1948 war of independence - the road to Jerusalem, his "hometown". After more than 20 years of fighting Joshua dies, leaving a strong tribal coalition that conquered most of the land of Cannaan, which turned to be the land of Israel. Rabin, after almost 50 years of fighting the Palestinians and the Arabs became the prime minister who signed a Peace Agreement with the State of Jordan and the PLO, and was murdered for it, leaving a weaker "tribal coalition". The Israeli society still didn't find peace in it's land. Explore the story of these two leaders.
