A City Compact Together

Hello Everybody,

Thanks for checking in on today's Blog.

It's a hot day here today! And the Old City is packed with people. Thursdays in the summer months are always a bottleneck here as Jewish families come to celebrate Bar Mitzvahs and Bat-Mitzvahs along with weddings and wedding pictures.

Also traveling the streets and alleys are countless “birthright” groups – bus after bus of Jewish youth who come to Israel to explore their Jewish heritage.

It always makes it difficult for those of us who live in the Old City to carry out our daily lives – you can hardly move – whether it's in your car trying to get out or in the market trying to pick up some fruits.

But facing the fact – some things never change. This city has always been packed with people. Whatever page of history you look at you can find a crowd of people hear – with an exception or two.

Would you like to seeing living history? Touch the stones of scripture? You can join up on our LeSEA tour group coming up this fall. It will be in November when it isn't as hot as it is now – and you will have the chance to see what I see everyday here in the Land of the Bible.

Come be inspired by the stones that cry out! Go to for more info.

Hope to see you in November!
