-The '''Holy Land''' is a term which in [[Judaism]] refers to the [[Land of Israel]] (also known as [[Palestine]]). The term is also used by Muslims and Christians to refer to the area between the [[Jordan River]] and [[Mediterranean Sea]].+

-Part of the significance of the land stems from the [[religious significance of Jerusalem]], the holiest city to [[Judaism]], the assumed place of [[Ministry of Jesus|Jesus's ministry]], and the [[Isra and Mi'raj]] event in [[Islam]]. The perceived holiness of the land to Christianity was one of the motivational factors behind the efforts of the [[Crusades]], which sought to win the Holy Land back from the Muslim [[Great Seljuq Empire|Suljuq]] Turks that had conquered it from the Muslim [[Arabs]], who had in turn conquered it from the Christian [[Byzantine Empire]].+
- +
-Many sites in the Holy Land have long been [[pilgrimage]] destinations for adherents of the [[Abrahamic religions]], including Jews, Christians, Muslims, and [[Bahá'ís]]. [[Pilgrim]]s visit the Holy Land to touch and see physical manifestations of their [[faith]], confirm their beliefs in the holy context with collective excitation, and connect personally to the Holy Land.+
