Rose in Israel
May 12-22, 2002

Rose Casazza, Eric's Mom, went on a group tour to Israel during a time when it was not popular with the average tourist.  The hotel where they stayed had been closed, but reopened just for that tour group.  

Israel rolled out the red carpet for them and they had a fantastic trip.  Here are a few of the highlights that Rose shared with me.
