Day 9, Jan 15

15 JAN ~ Sunday ~ Free day ~  Today was a free day for pilgrims explore Jerusalem. Mass was held at the Notre Dame of Jerusalem Center where we saw a replica of the earliest pictoral evidence of the 2nd Temple menorah which was found at Magdala in the Galilee. Some pilgrims walked the ramparts on the walls of the Old City.  Others visited Yad Vashem, the museum remembering the Holocaust. Some shopped along Ben Yehuda Street, the modern shopping area in New Jerusalem. Some visited holy sites for further prayer and reflection.
