Visit to the Negev

Last weekend, I went with my husband and his rabbinical school class on a tour of the Negev, Israel's desert southern region. We saw a solar power plant, climbed a mountain, and spent the night on a Kibbutz. All in all, a fabulous trip.

The largest solar-whatsit generator in the world:

A lesson from our guide about Machtesh Ramon, the one of a kind giant crater in the Negev.

While climbing Mount Solomon, some of the guys take a leak into the crater.

Our guides taught us this crazy hiking game involving eating M&Ms off of stacked rocks while holding your foot in one hand and your ear in the other. Israelis are nuts!

Picking Pomellos (a strange hybrid fruit developed in Israel) in the orchard at Kibbutz Yahel.

And yes, cows can be cool.

This one's a baby! Its name, gender, and birthday are written on the little card on its "crib." Awww!

Photo Published in Haaretz!

One of my photos of the Women of the Wall service was on the front page of this morning's English edition of Haaretz, Israel's largest newspaper!

Woman of the Wall

Women of the Wall is a group that has been trying for years to get women the right to pray at the Western Wall. This morning, I went to one of their monthly services, along with a large chunk of the CCAR delegation.

And here's the opposition, trying to get the WOW women to stop singing. One of them kept pushing me and tried to take my camera, but I took her picture and threatened to show it to the police. Ha!

Daniel and Jessica Portraits

This Saturday I did a Valentine's Day portrait session with a wonderful couple in Jerusalem. We got lucky and it was such a gorgeous day that it merited ice cream (which found its way into my photos). We had some adventures, and even got yelled at for taking pictures of the American Consulate. But the shots were great, so it was all worth it.
