It’s been a busy couple of days and I am now trying to catch up.  Yesterday, Ricki and I picked up our oldest Granddaughter, Sara, at University and took her to the Eretz Israel Museum in Tel Aviv. They have an exhibit that I very much wanted to see called foto Rachel and we were not disappointed. It runs until the end of March and I recommend it highly.


While I am discussing special museum exhibits, here in Jerusalem, across from the Israel Museum (worth a post on its own) is the Bible Lands Museum. Ricki and I saw an exhibit there called Angels & Demons, Jewish Magic Through The Ages. I do not know how much longer it will run by it is well worth the 1.5 hours it takes to see it.
