Is It Okay to Keep Family Traditions?

Good morning from Jacksonville, Florida. It is a fine, chilly morning here – especially for me. I am surrounded by my grandchildren, which are always a delight, even if they can sometimes be a lot of work – work that an old Nona is not used to anymore. As we age, we don’t realize that […]

High Holy Days to Hurricane to Israel to…

Happy Thanksgiving! It’s been just over three days since I’ve been home and I am still caught somewhere between Israel and the U.S. – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Is this jet lag? If it is, it’s not the kind I’ve experienced before. I did end up with an extremely high fever on Sunday, but come […]

Jerusalem! Jerusalem!

Today is my last post from the Land of Israel for this trip. Yesterday we ventured to Bet Shean. Our itinerary called for us to be there for a few hours, but some of us wanted to get to Jerusalem early. Bet Shean is like Masada, Caesarea, Tel Dan, and Banais Springs. There is so […]

God Did It

I love when God sets things up. When He makes the arrangements, everything just falls into place. Yesterday was just such a day. I like to go on Daniel Carmel’s boat on the Sea of Galilee. He is a Jewish believer in Messiah. The only challenge is when you have a small group, you need […]

Mt Carmel, Megiddo, and Nazareth

This morning I write to you from a 200-year-old Ottoman Palace turned hostel. There is a pigeon cooing in the tree above my head, water running in the fountain, and the sun is waking on this new day. I’m looking forward to the new things God has for us as we venture toward Capernaum. Yesterday […]

Our Second Shabbat in the Land

Our second Shabbat started a little later than normal. At Abraham Hostel, they gather everyone to cook at 6pm, then start the Shabbat meal at 8. It’s already a few hours into Shabbat, but because they are dealing with tourists who are out seeing the sites, it works. Whether it’s right or not, I would […]

Will There Be a Next Time?

Walking through the streets of the old city last night, I couldn’t help but reflect on how I was feeling. It was a strange feeling. We had just finished a simple Shabbat meal at the hostel, and two of us were walking to the Wall to pray, excorted by the youngest member of our group. […]
