Be’er Sheva in the Bible and Today

Be’er Sheva is one of the first cities in the Land of Israel mentioned in the Torah (Bible). The name Be’er Sheva (באר שבע), is made up of two Hebrew words.  Be’er (באר) means ‘well’, and the second part of the word is made up of the root sheva ש-ב-ע, which means both ‘seven’ and ‘oath’. Thus, Be’er Sheva can mean either ‘well of the seven’ or ‘well of the oath.’ Modern day Be’er Sheva is a thriving city and home to a diverse community of Israelis. The Ethiopian schoolgirls pictured above are harvesting crops from a field in one of Be’er Sheva‘s many agricultural areas.
