Israel Day 6: Israel Museum, Jordan River, Jericho, Qumran, Dead Sea, Riding Camels

by Steve Ray on September 17, 2018

We give everybody a free day today but we offer an optional tour for those who would like to go. Our Mass today was at the Notre Dame Center and you can see Fr. Gavin‘s homily here.

We start at the Israel Museum and see the Temple Model and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Then we drive down in elevation 4150 feet to the Dead Sea and Jordan River. We renew baptismal vows and pray the Mystery of the Baptism of Our Lordo at the Jordan River.

Then we go into Jericho for lunch and to see the Mount of Temptation and a sycamore tree. Then to Qumran followed by swimming in the Dead Sea and riding camels. A fun day was had by all!
