The MCC Group

Here we are, all of the group from MCC in addition to Vicky from LA who is traveling with us and our guide to the far left, Tsippi. This was taken after a Sunday picnic in a park overlooking Jerusalem. Yesterday our guide, Tsippi, walked our legs off as she took us through the "Cardo" the central corridor of the city, going deep underground through excavations of wealthy homes, probably those of priestly families. We ended up at the Wailing Wall and then through another museum depicting what the Temple looked like before the second desruction in 70 AD. We closed the day along the eastern side of the Temple Wall on the teaching steps (see post below).
Though I have been on an EO tour to Israel before, it's like I've never been here. There is that much information and data. The layaers of history are truly phenomenal! Today we go back into the Old City and walk the Via Dolorosa, the way of the cross, going into the church of the Holy Sepulchre and then some time for some much needed free-time in the Old City.
Tomorrow we have an optional tour to Masada, En Gedi, and the Dead Sea for some floating!

"You did it!" Nothing like a meal to bring folks together, just a bit of Swedish catnip.
