At the beginning of the month I had the honour of being one of the guides for the Wexner Heritage Program summer institute in Israel (run with Makor). Built around the theme of Israeli President Rivlin's 'Four Tribes' speech, this was an intensive eight-day program featuring in depth tours and meetings with key figures in Israeli society. The picture above was taken during a home visit to the town of Lod, where we learned about Israeli-Arabs/Palestinian citizens of Israel. It
Last month, while guiding a fantastic group from the Biblical Theological Seminary, we ran into the legendary Mary Mary in Capernaum's ancient synagogue. For those who don't know, Mary Mary are a gospel duo who have sold over eight million records worldwide. They were in Israel filming a new television series, and the group was extremely excited to meet them, as was I! It's always fun to run into celebrities. Check out Mary Mary's song Go Get It!
