We recently returned from 12 glorious days in “the (holy) Land” where we were able to see, touch, and experience life “in that place.” Our wonderful guide, Kishkush, as well as Yehuda, Neil, Marcia and Theresa taught us so much about the places we saw. We really packed a lot in seeing most of Jerusalem in 4 days, 2 days in the desert visiting the Dead Sea, Ein Gede and Qumran and 6 days in the Galilee, Golan Heights and the coast. We fell in love with the place and each other, Jesus and his people, learning sooooo much about the Jewishness of Jesus and how we non-Jews are grafted in and have a place at his table!
Trip of a lifetime!
Here are a few pictures of (literally) the hundreds that we took…
