This summer, The Quilt Show has been doing weekly armchair trips to wonderful locales. They have made 2 slide shows of my trip to Israel!! Last week was an overview:
This week, I am most excited because it is all about the mosaics I found in this out of the way synagogue In Acco, called Or Torah.

My Husband and I took off on our own. From Tel Aviv, we took 2 taxis and 3 trains to get there. We ended up with an eager taxi driver who did not speak much English but was insistent he knew where it was. He did not and kept telling us that we were there, when we were not. We finally found the temple on a tiny little side street. It was so worth the trip.
