== Geography ==
Galilee embraces more than one-third of present-day [[Israel]], extending "from Dan on the north, at the base of [[Mount Hermon]], to the ridges of Carmel and Gilboa on the south, and from the Jordan valley on the east away across the splendid plains of Jezreel and [[Akko]] to the shores of the [[Mediterranean Sea|Mediterranean]] on the west."
Se Westerna Galilēa, ēac gehāten the "Northern Coastal Plain" starys from north of Haifa up to [[Rosh Hanikra]] in the border between [[Israel]] and [[Lebanon]].
== Stǣr ==
[[Solomon]] rewarded Hiram for certain services rendered him by the gift of an upland plain among the mountains of [[Naphtali]]. Hiram was dissatisfied with the gift, and called it "the land of Cabul". The Jews called it ''Galil''.
In Roman times, the province of [[Palestine]] was divided into three regions, [[Judea]], [[Samaria]], and Galilee, which comprised the whole northern section of the country, and was the largest of the three.
== Modern Galilēa ==
Modern Galilee is one of the few areas of Israel to have retained a large [[Palestinian]] [[Arab]] population after [], and has a particularly large number of [[Druze]].
Because of its mountainous terrain most of the settlements in the Galilee are small villages. The main industries of those villages are [[agriculture]] and [[tourism]]. Many families have "[[Zimmer]]" (sort of hotel room) for hire.
