After much cajoling, our intrepid member, Elyse Shustak, has agreed to tell us about her recent trip to Israel and Palestine at the May meeting. Elyse traveled with the Abraham Path management team from the village of Beit Sahour in the West Bank to Be'er Sheva in the Negev Desert of southern Israel, and was deeply moved by what she saw and heard; the people she met, Israelis, Palestinians, Bedouins, and American peace pioneers. The Abraham Path (http://www.abrahampath.org/about.php) is a cultural tourism initiative - a pilgrimage which traces the footsteps of Abraham through the Middle East. We look forward to hearing about Elyse's experiences and to find out just what she has taken away from a most unusual vacation.
