We should remember Hiroshima today.

"mia more," I do remember Hiroshima today, but this is a photo blog about Israel and I have no photos of my own of Japan.

Mia, we are a bit sensitive about the subject right now; we are praying that Tel Aviv will not be the next Hiroshima.

Gosia, shalom to you in Poland and thanks for your so informative blog.

What a view! I only passed by during a trip to Tiberias...

Dina said...

Friends, glad you like the expansive view.

VP, yeah, I know, most people only just pass by Mt. Tabor on the way to somewhere else. It is a long way up.

Beautiful views from this historical place, Dina !

Certainly looks like it's worth the exertion to get to the summit.

that's a nice pictures that you have posted! I liked the second picture...the trees do point to specific location of Israel or Lebanon. Do you know which tree are these?

Dina said...

Shalom Jaipurthru mylens. If I enlarge the photos with two clicks, it seems like the trees might be oaks. In fact there is a kind of tree named Mt. Tabor Oak. See http://www.wildflowers.co.il/english/plant.asp?ID=370

Todah rabah, Dina, for the views and the posts. It revived some memories of a visit there oh so many years ago. Which I did not have photos of from back then and was trying to resurrect (no pun intended) from my old brain. ;-) And Shabbat Shalom to you! Sara
