Thursday afternoon we got ready for the closing day of the Passover festival. This specifically celebrates the splitting of the sea when the Israelites were freed from Egypt. Led by the musical Rabbi Shlomo Katz, we sang the 'Song of the Sea' while looking down across the Kinneret. Although the Sea of Galilee is in the north of Israel, and the original crossing was far south of the holy land, the scene and emotion were still inspiring.


We finished our holiday with the seventh day of Passover on Friday, followed immediately by the sabbath day. Then on Sunday we drove home after a spiritual and restful week in this beautiful area. Amazingly we encountered even less traffic than our way up, and made it home in under two hours.
