We traveled along both sides of the Jordan River and visited cities in Israel, Palestine and Jordan. The Sea of Galilee, Magdala, Capernaum, Jericao, Amman, Petra and Jerusalem were just a few of our stops. We looked at historic peoples in the region and examined the historic religious and political claims on land on both sides of the Jordan River.
This was our journey.

Dear All,
Today, Orthodox Christian New Year's in the Holy Land, is a free day for the students.
Most have elected to visit Yad Vashem, the Jewish Holocaust Museum, and/or the Shrine of the Book [a museum of the Dead Sea Scrolls where the Book of Isaiah is displayed, and/or walk the Old City walls, and/or visit the Israeli Museum.  This evening our ever-faithful Hanna will walk down the road to a small club which has live Arabic music.  A fun place for younger people who are not "keeping the Sabbath."

Tomorrow, Saturday, we leave for Bethlehem.

Brother Donald
