On My Way…

MY FIRT INTRODUCTION TO ISRAEL…

I had barely slept  on  my plane ride to Israel. Toward the end of the flight, I finally  dosed off for about an hour. Out of the quietness, that comes on a flight at 5:00 am New York time, I was awakened to several people talking all around me. As I opened my half asleep eyes, I noticed men all around me standing and putting on tefillen and their talis.

  It was time for morning prayers and I was taken back by this unexpected moment. It seemed  beautiful and mystical all at the same time.  I tried to capture some of what I saw, but in all honesty, I was a bit nervous.

Was I imposing and out of line? I felt almost guilty. Maybe I should have be joining them. I was a bit nervous that someone was going to say something I did not want to hear, but  no one did.

I have never experienced this before, and I hope it will not be looked at in a wrong manner. Since it was by no means malicious. These are a few of the images I captured. Wish I had gotten more…Or maybe not.
