Guiding Hershel was a big personal reward and honor for me.
Hershel is the “Guru” of popular “Biblical Archaeology”, writing and editing “Biblical Archaeology Review” for more then 40 years.
I am pleased to say I will also guide a BAR/BAS group this coming October.
I took Hershel (and Sue Laden, his publisher) to the possible site of the Maccabeen Tombs, and the ancient synagogue at Umm el-Umdan (Modi’in?)
Meeting, touring, and guiding Hershel was one of my most memorable experiences in the last few years.
An thank you Taka for taking the photos!
I would like to thank you for the hospitality and friendship you showed to me and my associates during our stay in Israel.
