Tour Guide Aaron was great. WE wished we booked him for more days than we did. He took us to the “inside” of Israel and the “inside” of the Tanach. Clearly depicted stories from the prophets and showed us many interesting things. Highly recommend!!!… Read More

World's smallest ambulance?
_____________________
Israeli organizations alike ZAKA and MDA are pioneers in the field of getting medical help to people as fast a possible. Jerusalem is famous for its narrow alleyways and crowded neighborhoods which are beautiful to visit but are a challenge to reach when someone has a medical emergency. So these organizations invented ambulance motorcycles and smart cars that can reach the patient in a couple of minutes and begin administering life saving treatment while the full size ambulance is stuck in traffic. This innovation has saved countless lives in situations where every second counts.

In this week's torah portion, Jacob, the father of the people of Israel came to live in the city of Shechem. Here's the picture I took this week of one of Jacob's descendants standing on Mt. Gerizim looking down on Shechem!

On the bus from Tel Aviv to Be'er Sheva. Abraham would have seen this view 3,800 years ago!
What a beautiful morning in Tel Aviv. To think that 100 years ago this city was just sand and water! How privileged we are to live in a generation where God is returning His people to this Land!
