Every year at Passover I've said "next year in Jerusalem." Of course there was that year I lived in Alaska and said "next year in Maui" but that's another story... This year, 2017, is my year in Jerusalem and also my 70th birthday!
We came out of the tunnel into the light and then there it was in front of me: Jerusalem in all her glory waiting for me to learn, explore, and experience. In 2010, Elie Wiesel wrote an open letter to Barack Obama. "When a Jew visits Jerusalem for the first time, it is not the first time. It is a homecoming." I am blessed to be home. Thank you to the wonderful women of WRJ for this amazing trip.
