Publishing is the dissemination of literature, music, or information.[1] It is the activity of making information available to the general public. In some cases, authors may be their own publishers, meaning originators and developers of content also provide media to deliver and display their content. Also, the word “publisher” can refer both to an individual who leads a publishing company or an imprint and to an individual who owns/heads a magazine.

Traditionally, the term refers to the distribution of printed works, such as books (the “book trade”) and newspapers. With the advent of digital information systems and the Internet, the scope of publishing has expanded to include electronic resources such as the electronic versions of books and periodicals, as well as micropublishing, websites, blogs, video game publishers, and the like.

Beit Shemesh (Hebrew: בֵּית שֶׁמֶשׁ, Latin: Bethsames, Beth Shamesh, Bethshamesh or Bet shemesh and most often Beth-Shemesh in English translations of the Hebrew Bible) is a city located approximately 30 kilometres (19 mi) west of Jerusalem in Israel’s Jerusalem District, with a population of 114,371 in 2017.[1] The history of Beit Shemesh goes back to pre-biblical times. The modern city of Beit Shemesh was founded in 1950.

The ancient city of Beit Shemesh (“house of the sun” or “temple of the sun” in Hebrew) was originally named after the Canaanite sun-goddess Shemesh, who was worshipped there in antiquity. The ruins of the ancient biblical city are located at a site called Tel Beit Shemesh (Tell er-Rumeileh), a tell located near the modern city.[2] In the Amarna letters Shamash is mentioned several times, along with Addu, as one of the greatest gods: the Pharaoh is “like Addu and Shamash”.[3] The name Beth-Shemesh was shared by (at least) two other places in Palestine and one more in Egypt.[4]
