“Shalom from Israel!,” a photographic journey through that country, will be presented at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 12, by Congregation Bet Haverim. The event will be held in the congregation’s Social Hall, 1715 Anderson Road.

George Rooks, chairman of the CBH Israel Matters Committee, returned from Israel six months ago. He will discuss current issues in the country as he shows scenes of the intriguing places where his family traveled.

The visual journey moves from Rosh Hanikra on the Lebanese border to the intersection of Lebanon, Israel and Syria at Mt. Hermon. There will be scenes of the Syrian border along the Israeli Golan Heights and travel through Samaria and Judea to such places as Shechem and Hebron.

The journey includes geology and archaeology on the way through the Negev to Eilat on the Red Sea before concluding in Jerusalem on the last night of Hannukah.

A retired UC Davis faculty member, Rooks is the author of a daily Israel blog widely read around the world, www.israelstreet.org, and an occasional contributor to the Jerusalem Post. He and his wife Hila are citizens of the United States and Israel and live half of each year in Ashdod, Israel, and half in Davis.
