Shalom from Jerusalem!

 

Another early start today and a bus ride to Mount Zion.  We saw the Tomb of David and the room where the Last Supper was said to have occurred. If you have ever been to that area, you know the walking is challenging for the able-bodied, imagine doing it with wheelchairs!  But everyone did great and loved the history.

From there we walked through the Jewish quarter and learned more about the history of Jerusalem. Back on the bus, we took a short drive to the Friends of Zion Museum. This relatively new museum features the stories of "Christian Zionists" and does so with the use of extraordinary and interactive technology. We all marveled at it and heard lots of comments about "things we never knew."

After a great lunch, we watched the shops closing up for Shabbat as we headed back to the hotel. Later we will gather to light candles together and enjoy a Kabbalat Shabbat service, put together for us by Melanie, before dinner.

Our days are flying by and one is more amazing than the next.
