Joppa, meaning beautiful, is located on Israel's Mediterranean seacoast between Caesarea and Gaza, about 35 miles (57 kilometers) northwest of Jerusalem. It is known variously in The Bible as Japho, Jaffe, or Yafo. Today, the ancient city of Joppa (in photograph) is annexed to the modern city of Tel Aviv, Israel's largest city.
