Pool Of Bethesda (בריכות הצאן)

Located in the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem, the Pool of Bethesda is where Jesus healed a paralyzed man according to the Gospel of John. The name Bethesda means either House of Mercy or House of Grace. The pool was a gathering place for the blind, sick and crippled during biblical times. It was understood at the time that when an angel stirred the waters, the first person into the water would be healed.

Old Jaffa, Israel. Over the years, Old Jaffa has been a fitting starting off point for our tours as we arrive at Ben Gurion Airport and stay close by in Tel Aviv our first night. So surreal to walk these stones under the starts and streetlights and imagine you have traveled back in time.
