The Land of Israel Hebrew?, Eretz Yisrael is, according to the
Hebrew Bible, the region which was promised by their God to the
descendants of Abraham through his son Isaac and to the Israelites,
descendants of Jacob, Abraham's grandson. This land forms part of
the Abrahamic, Jacob and Israel covenants. Mainstream Jewish
tradition regards the promise as applying to all Jews, including
converts and their descendants. The Biblical definitions of Eretz
Israel encompass different regions; the actual area defined by
these Bible passages is also subject to differences of opinion.
This term should not be confused with historical Israelite kingdoms
or with the modern nation state of Israel Medinat Yisrael. Prior to
the foundation of the State of Israel, the term Eretz Yisrael was
used by Jews to refer to the area then generally known among
non-Jews as the Holy Land or as Palestine. Since 1967, the term has
been associated with the political right in Israel.
