Ascending Masada


This is Emily and I wrapping ourselves in an Israeli flag. This photo was taken at the top of Masada. Masada is the location of a harrowing story where the zealots committed mass suicide to avoid being enslaved by Romans. For me this photo represents being able to be freely Jewish in the state of Israel. I don’t need to take drastic measure to preserve my Judaism. - Leila
