Beit Shemesh

Beit Shemesh, or Beth Shemesh, was the first place I encountered in Israel that gave me that feeling that I could be anywhere in the world. The landscape so reminded me of Southern California - I felt like I was home, but with the excitement of traveling! Here, we gathered our 400+ group for singing and for learning of the Biblical significance of Beit Shemesh. It is here where the ark of the covenant was carried through after it was captured by the Philistines in battle. This was such a perfect day - the sun was shining brightly, we made some great friends and we were in Israel! What more can you ask?
