Monday adventures

Our first stop on Monday was at Masada, a massive palace and fortress. While one palace was already there, Herod the Great improved that one for his wives and children and then built another one for himself. In AD 70 the Jewish Zealots inhabited it. They lived in Masada for 3 1/2 years before the Romans breached the walls, only to find the Zealots had killed themselves.

Next, we visited En-Gedi, a spring close by. David had hidden from Saul in a cave there, and had the opportunity to kill Saul but didn’t.

After a swim in the Dead Sea, our group went to the site of old Jericho and saw the part of the wall that is still standing.

Finally, we saw a presentation of the Tabernacle in the evening.

I know you want to see pictures, and I will try, but internet is very “iffy.”
