Ask and you shall recieve

Please, ask me anything you want to know about the holy land, my classes and curriculum, and the places that I mention. Or anything else. I would love some pointers as to what you find interesting and what I should go into a little more detail about.


  1. matt... you should check out my sister's blog posts about her trip to jerusalem. here's the link to the first one.

  2. I'd love to hear about the people who live there now. Do you make friends with the neighbors who live around the campus? Do they like the students? Tell me a little about the people you are going to school with. How are they handling the new life? Has there been anything that you have studied that gave you an uh-hah! moment? Are you studying Hebrew or Arabic? What is your favorite subject? Why? How big is the temple wall? Was the original temple a tent and then walled (I think so) if so when? What do you eat? What teacher is making an impression - why? Please tell me you are a straight A or solid B student. What make you happy?! Do you talk with families? or just men? Are there lots of tourists? What place lets you see the past the best? Is your focus in life changing?
    Feel free to pick just one of these - you know I am endlessly curious about life and the lives of my family!

  3. Thanks Benjamin - Great pictures!
