As we get ready to leave Israel in a few days, here are a few pictures from around the land.
Here are a few more pictures that we took of sukkahs the past few weeks. We have enjoyed celebrating the fall feasts in Israel. We took a few trips into Jerusalem the past week. Tens of thousands of pilgrims coming into the city created quite a traffic jam for miles outside of the city. We explored some new routes to get into Jerusalem and when we got there, found some major roads blocked off for a parade. The Bible museum had a travelling display of the history of the Bible. On display were some original Jewish prayer books as old as the 9th century. Also on display was the original Tyndale Bible. It was a very informative and excellant display. Parking the car was a huge issue, as hundreds of other people had the same idea…enjoy!
Jeff and I were at the homes of two different friends this past week and helped them put up and decorate their sukkahs. We had our first Sukkot dinner at another friends house. Here are some pictures that will give you an idea of what we have been up to.
