AIP – Soreq Caves and the Israel Musea

Amazing day!! And…what beautiful weather!   The JNF dedication center was our first stop this morning and  Avinoam Binder who welcomed us to the park.  He explained the park and what JNF does in Israel.  We walked around the site and were most impressed with the Bar Mitzvah Wall.  Then on to Soreq Caves – an unbelievable site located in the American JNF Park.  This is a cave that has stalactites and stalagmites – incredible formations.  Lunch in the lovely German Colony and yes there is more…the Israel Museum.  We had a visit to the 2nd Temple Model, Dead Sea Scrolls and some the Judaica exhibit.  But the highlight was the King Herod Exhibit – this is only going to be open for a few months.  The lines are quite long as it just opened a few weeks ago.  Our Farewell Dinner was held at the Modern Restaurant – great food and lots of fun.  One more day…we can’t believe that!  CAARI is one incredible day after another.
