... which is a pretty large city today. We went to a beautiful observation point, which gave us a grand view of the Jezreel Valley from the north. We took the opportunity there to take a group photo.

Qumran is a ruin from the days of the Second Temple on the northwest shore of the Dead Sea. It became famous in 1947 when a number of ancient manuscripts were found in nearby caves. These manuscripts are now known as the Dead Sea Scrolls. Since the site of Qumran ruins is very close to the Dead Sea, and the Dead Sea is 400 meters (1300 ft) below sea level, we had ...
