Purim--Paris and Israel--March 2007
Spring Break at last! I'm off to see my children who are both studying in Israel.
|I catch Purim (and the total lunar eclipse) in Paris, before running off to Israel late Sunday night, March 4:|
|Megilat Esther about to be read||Esther, meaning hidden...||Neighborhood kids Purim morning|
|I arrive 5am Monday morning, March 5, Shushan Purim. I drop my bags in our Tel Aviv apartment and take the bus to Jerusalem where my daughter is studying towards a double BA, Psychology and Biology, at the Hebrew University. We get all set for Purim and hit the holy streets.|
|Our disguises||Aroma--the best coffee!||After hearing the Megilah, at the Wall||Ben Yehuda, Jerusalem|
|Today it's my Haifa day. It take the train up north to the city where my son was born while my husband I were students there, and where he is finishing his double BA in Mathematics and Computer Science at the Technion while working at IBM.|

|I spend some time in my favorite city, Tel Aviv. It's lively, has the best cafes and shops, and an exquisite sunset every evening|

The week is over too soon! But there is some consolation: as the plane descends, the Eiffel Tower bursts into a shimmering welcome!
