Israeli Easter celebrations are observed with great intensity and emotion as people tend to share the pain of Jesus and the inequities of the world.

The Holy City is a place where the death lives side by side with the signs of the resurrection.
One of the major Easter traditions in Israel is that many processions are carried out in groups whereby each group travels to Golgotha commemorating Christ’s journey and the route is referred to as the Twelve Stations of the Cross.
Many tourists’ fro different parts of the world take part in this Holy Procession. However at one o'clock in the afternoon on Easter Sunday the church leader goes into the tomb of Jesus and the doors are closed after him. All over the town lights go out, later church bells ring and the leader appears with a blazing torch. The torch is said to have been miraculously lit inside the tomb. Everyone present in the church, lights their candles from the holy torch, thereby the whole church premises get enlighten.
