Shabbat in Jerusalem

Friday was another beautiful warm day in Jerusalem. We moved our table out on our balcony and enjoyed our Sabbath dinner looking at the moon and stars.  Today, Shabbat, was a full day. We walked about 20 minutes to attend a worship service. While there we ran in to some old friends we knew during the time we lived in Israel.

Then we walked back to our apartment, had a quick snack and we walked the opposite direction to the Old City to the Western Wall.  The place was almost empty of people. We mainly saw tour groups, most of whom were from Africa.  It was strange to see so few people praying at the Wall.

We call this the real oreo cookie

After dinner and meeting with a friend to finalize work projects for tomorrow and Monday, we walked down to Ben Yehuda Street. There was lots of dancing and music taking place. The men dancing were singing, "We want the Messiah Now!"
