After lunch the six of us and Mom headed out to Jerusalem, to show the kids the Kotel for the first time. This time to Jerusalem was like no other - so many things have changed. The roads. The "sprawl." The modern and ancient is still amazing. There are new tunnels and shopping malls where I couldn't even imagine.
|Tunnel Under the Old City!|
|Look how shinny and new it is!|
|It felt like we were in VEGAS!|
The kids were almost loosing it at this time - especially Puppy. But we pulled out paper for each of them to write a note - 'peteck' to put in the wall.
And then Mom and I took Belle and Bean - and J took Bob and Puppy to touch "The Western Wall" for the first time in their lives.

|My peteck...and one for a freind's husband who has been ill|
From there we went for dinner in the Cardo - Schwarma....again! And no one complained.
After that we spent the night at the S's - our friends with the 5 girls who live in El'Azar outside of Jerusalem. We are so greatful to be together and spend this time with one another.
Tomorrow...."Bereishit" - Genesis, at Avrams Tent!
