Herodian – Feb. 23

Spectacular!  Amazing!  And…what a view!  It is hard to describe one of Herod’s greatest architecture  achievements! But, Neil always does a superb job!   CAARI climbed the mountain that Herod had built to house his Palace and his final resting place.   Then we made our way down for a tour of the Royal Palace area and into the tunnels that held the water cisterns.
Our next visit of the day was Gush Etzion to learn about the dramatic story of the massacre that took place in May 1948.  But, 19 years later, the area is back in Jewish hands and today this is a thriving community.

The Canadian American Active Retirees in Israel, CAARI, offers active seniors a unique opportunity to experience Israel. The program is designed to explore the biblical landscapes, follow the footsteps of the early pioneers, and envision the future of our Homeland.
