A brief annotation The lowest river in the world and longest in Israel with a meandering course of 250 km (155 miles) and hardly more than 30 m (20 miles) at its widest point, the Jordan River flows fr om north to south of Israel, through the Syrian-African Rift Valley, joining the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea. Its waters, which come mainly fr om the rain and snow that falls on the Hermon Mountain to the north, are a prime source of drinking water and irrigation for Israel. One of the most historically and religiously significant rivers, the Jordan has played sacred roles in Judaism and Christianity. It was near Jericho wh ere the Israelites, led by Joshua, crossed the Jordan River to enter the Promised Land. In the New Testament, the Jordan River is given a special significance as the baptismal place of Jesus, John and other followers of Jesus. The «Yardenit» baptismal site, wh ere Jesus is said to have been baptized by John (Matthew 3:13) is visited by Christian pilgrims from all over the world. Many descend into the Jordan River at this site to be baptized. The Jordan River has become one of the popular tourist sites of Israel.
