Don’t have that much time? Get a comprehensive overview at Mini Israel.

Located near Ben-Gurion International Airport, the entertainment theme park is a popular place to start or end a trip to Israel. It has 385 painstakingly crafted dioramas in full miniature detail, populated by 25,000 tiny figures playing soccer, praying, flying airplanes, shopping, driving trucks — all the things Israelis do, just a lot smaller.
