The path came to end on Rechov HaMaayan in Ein Kerem. We made a brief stop at Mary's Spring to learn about the historical significance of Ein Kerem to both Jews and Christians before breaking up into smaller groups to explore the many small lanes filled with art galleries and interested buildings.
As the sun set, we regrouped at the spring to share our coolest find, and finish a conversation we began last week about the ethics of the tactics used by the Jews against British in pre-state Israel.
On our way up to Rechov Ein Kerem to meet the bus, we got a glimpse of some of the religious sites that make Ein Kerem a popular tourist stop. With time to enjoy nature, art, and have some great philosophical conversation, it could not have been a better Monday afternoon.
Join me tomorrow as I explore Second Temple Jerusalem with renown guide, educator, and author Aharon Horowitz.
