Claire has arrived! NYC to Tel Aviv, and then an hour on a bus to the BYU Jerusalem Center. Here was the view (FROM HER BEDROOM) that greeted her there. Wow. I lived in Jerusalem in 1979 before the Center was built. We lived on a kibbutz called Ramat Rachel on the outskirts of Jerusalem near Bethlehem. I am so thrilled for Claire and all the learning and adventures that await her. I wish I could be with her as she discovers that place that I loved so very much.
Above is a photo she sent this morning and below is the city going to bed after Shabbat.
