Jerusalem

by on May 9, 2017

We saw so many highlights today. We started the day driving to the top of the Mount of Olives to have a overall look at the Old City of Jerusalem. What a beautiful sight! Just to see that city is a wonderful thing to experience . We had a  picture taken with the city as our backdrop as a  reminder of our privilege to travel together.

To me the highlight of the day was the visit to the Holocaust museum, Yad VaShem. The literal meaning of Yad Vashem is Hand and Name. Which means we are written on Gods hand, never to be forgotten.

What a moving experience to think back to recent history and remember that terrible time of man’s inhumanity to his fellow man.  We left with quiet thoughts of sadness. Our guide reminded us that the Jews have always had people who have wanted to destroy them.

We thank God anew for the freedoms that we so greatly enjoy, and continue to pray for the Peace of Israel.
