They arrived on wednesday evening in Tel aviv.
The next morning we made a day-trip to Jerusalem, strolling the markets, getting a spectacular view from the austrian hospice terrace and finding the Naomi Kiss street, which could have been named after my sister! :)
The highlight of the day was our visit to the Graden Thomb, which is believed by some christians to be the place where Jesus was buried and risen... it is a magical garden, full of calm corners, to meditate, pray and sing (there was a lot of beautiful singing going on...) we set down and took it all in. There was an opportunity to make a private holy communion, they brought us wine and matza bread. My brother read the prayers and bible verses and it was truly magical to celebrate it here.
On Friday we walked around in Yuvalim and showed them the petting zoo and the village and drove to the Sea of Galilea. We visited Capernaum, and ate a huge lunch and went to swim in the warm water of the lake.
Yuvalim is just perfect for kids...
Sea of Galilee - so beautiful
In the evening we visited friends in Yuvalim and the next morning drove down at the shore of the mediterranean Sea to Tel aviv. Got ice creams and walked on the beach to old Jaffo and enjoyed a family lunch in Rishon. What an amazing weekend it was!!!
