I have decided to inaugurate a new feature on the blog, that will hopefully become a regular (perhaps weekly) one. Over the past couple of years in my tour guide course (and from before as well, obviously), I have taken lots of pictures all over this awesome country. So I thought it would be fun to make a little game out of them.
I will post a picture from somewhere in Israel, and you post in the comments where you think (or know) it is located. Be as specific as possible. For example, if I posted a picture from the Kotel / Western Wall, yes, you could write “Jerusalem.” But I’d prefer to see “Western Wall, Jerusalem.” Or even better, “Western Wall, Jerusalem, right next to the mechitzah on the men’s side.” Or something of that nature. You get the picture!
At this point it will just be for fun, but I may turn it into some kind of a contest with prizes and everything. Maybe I will do individual photo contests, and/or maybe I will keep track of all correct answers from now until later. I might give “extra points” for the first to get the correct answer or the most accurate. But bottom line, it is really just meant to be a fun challenge!
So, getting started with the first one, I figured I’d use (what I think is) a somewhat easy one. Do you know where the picture above was taken? If so, post your response in the comments! I’ll post the correct answer in a week or so.

Sefardi Ari synagogue tzfat?
Shoot, Aaron, you took my guess.I agree with you
Hmmm – I bet you will think I am jumping on the bandwagon but Aaron’s guess looks good to me (what’s my prize Joel?)
Yes, I knew it: Ha Ari in Zfat. But I was sure it is the Ashkenazi one!?

Answer is now up for this Mystery Photo. Check it out here:
Do I win anything for being first at least?
No. But if more than one person gets it right, I will give “more credit” to the first one!
