I've joined a mission to Israel after my Adventure to Israel trip was canceled. Read an Innocent's Abroad view of the Gaza conflict with a bit of cycling in the mix.
I'm glad to see that you are now in the "meaty" part of your sabbatical. Pass along a welcome from TBE to the members of Temple Beth Tefilloh. Are you cycling across this big bridge? If so, please stay upright and enjoy the view after you reach the other side! Be well...Deb Katz
