Dispatch from The Homeland: Part II

Today, we meandered through Tzfat which is the birthplace of kabbalah (think Madonna AKA Esther). Naturally we didn’t talk about kabbalah.

We spent time in a few synagogues along the way. This blue ceiling was the most interesting architectural feature of the three.

Otherwise, our group is largely dehydrated and the bus rides are like starvation drives. Today we ate breakfast at 7:15 AM and had lunch at 2:00 PM.

The good news? Lunch was falafel fried in front of us. Our little band of four was accompanied through the market by an Israeli whose father made aliyah from St. Paul in the 80’s. We live in a small world.

Tonight we go out in Tel Aviv.

Love you!
