Milton Martin was entering into talks with John McCain. That is why he is not in the picture. I was making sure I was not going to have to negotiate for Milton’s release.

A highpoint for many – a visit and prayers at the Western Wall.

It is getting late tonight so I will plan to post more pictures later.

We look forward to sharing with you more about our fatastic pilgrimage.

Peace be with you.
