A Show Without a Camera

On my third visit to the annual New York Botanical Garden Orchid Show, I did not take any pictures.

Machtesh Ramon

Machtesh Ramon is considered by some to be the most exquisite site on the planet. Located south of Beersheba in the Central Negev, not only is Machtesh Ramon the most spectacular geological sight in Eretz Yisrael, it contains within it some unique geological formations that are not found anywhere else on earth.

Hiking The Holy Land

Israel is home to about 2,500 wildflowers species, compared with only 1,500 species on the British Isles, which are more than 10 times larger than Israel!

Because only 100 passengers from any one ship are allowed on shore at any one time, visitors to the Frozen Continent will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities during its mildest time of year when temperatures average approximately 34 degrees.

The Rainbow Cave

Speechless wonder is the reaction to the beautiful vision seen though the Arch of the Keshet Cave at the Adamit Park in the Galilee. One of the most amazing natural wonders in Eretz Yisrael, the Me’arat Hakeshet — also known as the Rainbow Cave or Arch Cave — can be found up against the Israel-Lebanon border just a few kilometers from Rosh Hanikra and the sparkling blue Mediterranean Sea. It is situated amid the wild scenery on the cliffs of Nachal Betzet and Nachal Namer, on the Adamit Ridge.

Panama City And The Panama Canal

Ask most Americans what they know about Panama and they will declare, "Panama Canal and General Noriega," the deposed dictator now in prison.

The Inbal: Ringing the Bell for Luxury in Jerusalem

My room was majestic; airy and tastefully done in earth tones. A terrace facing the Old City allows you to sit and breathe in the sounds and smells of Jerusalem.

A Visit To Chevron

It is both disconcerting and reassuring to sit in a bulletproof bus. The double glass, which is impossible to really clean, doesn’t lend itself to photography, so I thought I’d relax on the journey.

Magdala

In July 2009, when the IAA began a five-month excavation at Magdala, it didn’t expect to find much… until, right beneath a wing of the proposed guesthouse, the top of a buried wall was discovered.

Reflections On Jewish Budapest

In the quaint and picturesque Hungarian town of Szentendre (Saint Andrew), just outside of Budapest, our group of five new friends who had gathered from throughout the Jewish world bask in the sunlight, seemingly frozen in time. We weave along the cobblestone streets browsing in and out of charming little shops offering handmade crafts, delicate latticework, whimsical wooden toys and intricately painted porcelain. We sit outside and feast on pastries that look more like art than edibles and ice coffee is reminiscent of ice cream floats.

Gamla – The Masada Of The North

We are all well familiar with the dramatic last stand of the Jewish rebels on Masada against the Roman Legions after the destruction of the Second Bais HaMikdash. But according to Josephus Flavious (Yosef ben Matityahu) a very similar drama took place on another isolated mountain in the very north of the country.

Yom Kippur and the Hidden Jews

Tzippori

Midrash Berashis Rabbah says that on the day that Rabi Akiva gave up his soul al Kiddush Hashem, Reb Yehudah HaNasi was born. A seven-generation descendent of Hillel HaZaken, Rebbe was the son of Rabban Shimon ben Gamlial, and of the royal line of Dovid HaMelech.

You’re In Good Hands With Isroyal

This past summer quite a few family members vacationed in Israel, some of them with young children. I remember how difficult flying from New York to Israel can be with small children, so with this in mind, I advised all of my family to book Isroyal VIP service along with their flight.

Traveling Jewish: Philadelphia Revisited

Last month, my husband and I spent a couple of days revisiting the 'city of brotherly love.' Here are some of the highlights:

The Small Wall

The Kotel Hakatan is the “little sister” of the well-known Western Wall, and is reminiscent of the photos and drawings of the way the Kotel looked before 1948. It is located 200 yards further north of the Kotel, and is on the same level as Har HaBayit (the Temple Mount). Since its plaza is much narrower, and the majority of the wall is underground (thereby concealing much of its height), the Small Wall is less impressive than the Western Wall.
