Home of the Zealots
Look at the tough hill to live
They were giving Rome a challenge
When they knew they had to give up most ran to the top of the hill and jumped off on the other side
So many stories in this land about passion and fighting for what you believe in


We heard a bit more about how Synagogue services were held.
Dancing and singing when the scrolls came out
13 year and up were scheduled to give the reflexion on the scripture for that day. Boys a nd girls, men and women


We are scaling down mount Arbel

Drying Shoes

Sorry for the side way picture
Don't know how to turn it on my phone
We dried our shoes on the ledge outside our window

Follow the Rabbi

Here ther were 2 ways down.
One way would get your feet wet
That is where our Rabbi went.
Would we follow?
Most tried to stay dry.
