Changes: Nebi Samwil, Jacob’s Well, Mount Gerizim

On our current trip to Israel I have noted a few changes (that may be “old news” to some of you) but I thought I would mention them.

The staircase to the roof of Nebi Samwil is now open—after being shut for a number of years—you can see the Dome of the Rock from here.

We can now take pictures at Jacob’s Well in Nablus—in my experience this was not permitted previously.

And then, students always seem to inject some surprises along the way!
