Awhile ago we visited a park that was meant to resemble what life would have been like in Biblical times, known as Neot Kedummim. We crushed hyssop, herded sheep, and watched a man write part of the Torah, among other things. Quite a treat!
|That's me grinding hyssop, which we later ate with our lunch!|
|Sheep herding is much more difficult than expected...I can't imagine doing it alone!|
|An almond tree. The branch I'm holding would have been similar to the one that "budded" on Aaron's staff, signifying that his tribe was the rightful heir to the Priesthood.|
