Today we started by visiting the Temple Mount. After leaving our backpacks and bibles on the bus, and making sure we were in modest clothing, we went inside and heard about the rich history of the place we stood.

Day four started out as a beautiful day in the synagogue at Chorazin. We saw a stone  manger that Carol fit in so well. It was easy to imagine all the male members of the family living in this village honoring God reading from the Torah. Imagine the traditions that all the boys growing into men go...
