Bethlehem is the birthplace of King David, meaning City of Bread that was the result of the wheat crop that grew in the region. Bethlehem’s main source of income is tourism, with dozens of hotels.
According to Christian tradition, Jesus was born there. It is a very holy town for Christians, and Jews alike. Every year at Christmas, Christians make the pilgrimage to Bethlehem, as the place where it is said that Jesus was born.
