Jerusalem – March 2 & 3

Dear Friends,
The skies have cleared – a little – but it is still quite chilly. Our day began at the Herzl Museum on Mt. Herzl. Another outstanding audio-visual presentation of the history of Zionism and Theodore Herzl. From there we visited Yad Vashem. Always a moving experience. Some of us had been there several times so Neil took us on a special to see Holocaust art and other special exhibits – certainly a day for reflection.
Our evening was one of celebration as we had dinner at one of Jerusalem’s newest restaurants – Angelica’s – a dining experience! Of course, we had some time to sing some new lyrics to our favorite “CAARI” Song”. Thanks to Joni, Irwin and Doris – Marcia always adds a new verse on tune and to our dear Noami. There are no words for this special talented lady!

Tomorrow is our last day of CAARI 2009 – and we will visit another new site – a salvage dig. We will be sifting through the fill that was taken from Temple Mt. (Solomon’s Stables). From there we will visit the Jewish Quarter and depart.
L’triot to our friends. We are anxious to see you and share our pictures and stories about our trip! It was fabulous!
Regards from Jerusalem,
