Ashdod is the fifth-largest city in Israel, located in the Southern District of the country, on the Mediterranean coast where it is situated between Tel Aviv to the north (20 miles) away and Ashkelon to the south (12 mi). The capital city Jerusalem is 53 km (33 mi) to the east.  Upon Joshua’s conquest of the Promise Land, Ashdod was given to the Tribe of Judah.
