This collection began with photos taken during a Duke Divinity School tour of Israel during May of 2016.

Haifa is located on the slope of Mount Carmel and overlooks the Mediterranean. It is a port city located on the Bay of Haifa. In addition to schools and sites related to Judaism, the Shrine of the Báb (part of the Bahá'í World Centre) is located in Haifa.

While every effort has been taken to correctly identify photos and catalog them using accurate keywords and metadata, complete accuracy is difficult to achieve. Corrections are most welcome. They may be sent, along with the static URL of the photograph for which the modification should be made, to the Duke Divinity School Library at divlib@duke.edu.
