Loving Our Tour Guide at the Israel Museum

The Dead Sea Scrolls, modern art, and a guide who hails from Jerusalem

Print Email

We went to the Israel Museum today, the first activity in our Mifgash, where we saw the Dead Sea Scrolls and modern Israeli art. Our tour guide, Ella, was the first Israeli we got to spend real time with, which probably explains why we were more interested in talking to her than looking at the art. “Stop paying attention to me, pay attention to the art,” she politely requested.

Oh, and she’s totally a Miranda. (We asked, in Hebrew.)
