Wednesday, January 27 – Our Day Continues

       Thoughts by Rosalie Whitehill
      .After lunch we went to the beautiful and new Hecht museum of antiquities on the campus of Haifa University.  We were met there by Israel’s outstanding underwater archeologist, Kurt Revah, who  told us about raising a Persian boat dating back 2,500 years…..about half of the hull was recovered and put together as one might do a jigsaw puzzle.  On the way back to Tel Aviv, we stopped at the Bahai gardens as some people in our group had not been there.  It was a very clear day, and we could see the coastline all the way up to Rosh Hanikra (at the Lebanese border) including the cities of Acco and Nahariya.

    CAARI program;s speakers forum featured Esther Carmel Hakim who spoke on the subject of women that played astounding roles in the establishment of the State of Israel and afterwards. Many women were familiar, but there were many no one had heard of before. She was able to keep he entire 27 people in the CAARI group interested and awake after a long tiring day working in the Ofer Forest. The lecture was absolutely outstanding. One of the best so far!
