Dr. Zohar Raviv argues that there are five separate landscapes of Israel: The dream of the land before the people of Israel enter it; Upon the entrance of the people to the land - a land that has a role in the ... covenant between Israel an God; After the expulsion - a collective memory; The modern Jewish state that we know today and lastly the vision that we have for the land.
