Mt. Gerizim and Mt. Ebal

3_MtGerizim_MtEbal_Shechem_Day3 A view not often seen on a typical tour of Israel is that of Mt. Gerizim (left) and Mt. Ebal (right), looking west at their profiles.  From this angle, one can see their proximity, illustrating how two halves of one great nation could face one another on each mountain to deliver the blessings and the curses.  These mountains can most commonly be seen on the North-South highway approaches to the modern day city of Nablus, which contains the ancient site of Shechem.
