.To celebrate her first twenty years of living in Israel, a friend gave a party for all the diverse people who are part of her life here.
The dinner was held in the courtyard of a beautiful old stone house in the neighboring village of Ein Kerem.The guests included religious Jews and seculars, young and old, nuns and monks, and a Palestinian pastor from Bethlehem.
Conversations flowed in German, Hebrew, English, and French.
They were so disciplined! They stood up tall to sniff the meat but never once jumped up on the serving tables.
They politely waited their turn. Toward the end of the evening enough little pieces of food had fallen on the floor that they could scavenge under our tables.
I'm happy to add these well-behaved cats to the weekly Camera-Critters menagerie..
