Our day started out with a 7:30am breakfast in the hotel lobby We had the privilege of spending some time with Vice Prime Minister of Israel, Moshe Ya'alon
Mrs. Judy Van Sant and I in front of the Knesset (which, in Israel, is equal to our U.S. Congress. We had the privilege of meeting with Member of Knesset Arieh Eldad here) Jews walking the streets of Old City Jerusalem
Touching the Wailing Wall, a very sacred sight for Jews because they believe that Shekinah, God's presence, is located within these walls. I praise God that God's presence is everywhere and that He lives in me!
Prayers written on small pieces of paper, rolled up, and tucked between the cracks of the Wailing Wall.... there were thousands of these!
Women praying at the Wailing Wall (which is considered to be so holy that men are separated from the women).
Women reading the Torah and reciting prayers at the Wailing Wall
Standing in front of an olive tree, inside the Jewish Quarter of Old City Jerusalem
Golgotha, the place of the skull. This is now Palestinian territory.Here is a zoomed-in view of Golgotha. Notice the two deep, dark holes... these are the eyes of the skull.
