Tel Aviv and Jerusalem

Today was a real dichotomy between modern and ancient. We were in Tel Aviv in the morning and went to the innovation center. Then onto Jerusalem and the old city. The Kotel or Western Wall was very emotional. We all hugged in a circle and said the Shehcheyanu then onto the wall for our private prayers.  We are based in Jerusalem for the rest of the trip.

Tomorrow is the Dead Sea and Masada and a camel ride. It will be a busy day.

First two days: TIberias and Tzvat
So here we are... after much anticipation and preparation, our little dedicated group made it all to Israel! What a first evening and day we have. Amazing lectures on family and love . Beautiful diner and dancing by the kenneret. And an amazing journey to Tsat :  the ancient birth  city of Kabbalah  and Jewish miyaticism . We also experienced a different perspective on the ritual of Mikva. Very I triguing fpr me personally!
It had been so fun to learn so many things, see different prospectives and get to know my lady companions better, I can't think of a more perfect way to start this journey!
