The beautiful גשר המיתרים Bridge of Chords at the entrance to Jerusalem! ⠀⠀


We love having visitors and first-timers to Israel come visit us in Jerusalem. It’s always fun to ask them what their expectations were of Israel before their trip and then hearing what they’ve experienced during their visit and what matched, didn’t match, and exceeded their expectations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When I visited Jerusalem for the first time as a college student on a Birthright Israel trip, I was completely unprepared to see a large, modern, bustling city. I had thought that the Old City was the entire Jerusalem. So many expectations I had got turned on it’s head during that trip and the experience was definitely a part of the reason I moved to Israel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
