The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

These are the LETTERS OF MY THOUGHTS.

Mottel in the Holy VI -Zion to Enlighten Me


Enjoying an ice cream in Teverya -I know it's none to inspiring, but it tasted good.

The end of my whirlwind ten day Birthright trip to Israel.

Click on the link to enjoy the pictures!


I don't think that the concepts here are as unique as those written about Jerusalem, nor the photos like those in Tzfas, but then again -what's so inspiring or beautiful about leaving Israel anyway?

Our last night in Israel we went to to Teverya (Tiberias), where we were to take a boat ride in the Kinneret . . . It turned out to be a party boat, with music, bongo drums and other entertaining things . . .










A wall in Teverya . . .

Sunday -the last day:


The morning -through a tree in Chispin where we spent Shabbos.


We traveled to Misgav Am, which featured a look into the Lebanese border . . .


An old lookout post -since replaced with more modern means of surveillance
.


A speech from Arieh Ben-Yakov -"I'm a Jew that doesn't take no cr@p, from nobody! The day you stop killing me is the day you have peace!"




A look into El Adisseh -notice the yellow Hezbollah flag -for this I had to look into Lebanon? I see them in 770 already.




A U.N. base -You'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.


Before I left I snapped a photo, with my fingers sticking through the security fence -I hoped that they'd be in Lebanon . . . But truth they were in some UN controlled neutral zone (which I guess is really Lebanon anyhow)


"
"Life is better when you ride bikes"
In Katzrin we went to a winery -something that I've done before . . .



and we got to taste wine . . . Something I haven't done (Yes, obviously I've had wine, but . . .)









In the Katzrin . . .










An ancient synagogue . . .

And thus ended my trip.

Off to a kosher restaurant in Tel Aviv, Ben-Gurion, and a flight . . . home?


Letters . . . of Thoughts . . . in Zion.

I'm a bit perturbed by some of your pictures. Show them to your Mashpia and see what he says....
