The dovekeepers

04 Jul

I wish I could have finished the book before we reached Masada but… when I do, I will have a better perspective. The last time I was at Masada it was 1985, nothing has changed except there is beautiful new visitor center and a lot of shade structures. I remember we climbed it with Ramah. Now they have a high speed cable car the size of the bus.

It is so special to experience places of significant history of your people. We have learned a lot about the zealots of the time of the destruction of the 2nd temple. Zealotry is the topic of Bennett’s Dvar Torah this coming Monday at his bar mitzvah.

    I am glad you are all doing well. The pictures are great. May the rest of the travels be safe. We have all been concerned.
