Ariel, the largest Jewish City in Samaria, rests upon the beautiful hills of Ephraim. Situated on the Cross - Samaria Highway, opposite the city that Joshua built and Mount Gerizim, the mount of the blessing and Mount Ebal, the mount of the curse, Ariel is in the heart of Biblical Israel. Today, a modern and vibrant city, Ariel is home to the region's only university, the beautiful Eshel Hashomron hotel and major industrial parks.
