On to Jerusalem. We have had a great time in Tel Aviv, our home for the past 4 weeks. We had a great view of the sea and enjoyed walking or running along the sea. The laundry man, Max, became our good friend. Yesterday was our last day at our community service projects. We were warmly thanked by all for volunteering and for coming to Israel! Overwhelming!
Our first stop was the JNF (Jewish National Fund) 9/11 Memorial. This is a Memorial dedicated to the men and women who perished in the September 11 terror attack. Liat, from the JNF office in Israel greeted us and explained this meaningful Memorial. The Memorial is located in the Natua Forest, on top of a hill overlooking Ha’arazim Valley and Nahal Soreq. In the heart of this plaza, artist Eliezer Weishoff, has designed a large 9-meter tall bronze sculpture. The sculpture is in the shape of an American flag and its upper part looks like a flame reaching for the sky.
