Moon over Maaleh Levona

by Akiva at Mystical Paths

A crescent moon rising over Maaleh Levona (Shomron, West Bank, Israel). At the bottom of the hill upon which Maaleh Levona sits, along the road up to the town, there's an ancient partial ruin of a stone inn. The walls still partially stand, a common room, multiple back rooms, and a _mikvah_ are still there. The Jews of Maaleh Levona come down the hill before Shabbat to use this ancient but still functional mikvah, which is clearly over 1,000 years old, but may be much older than that. The local Arabs call it Ibrahim's Inn, Abraham's Inn.

It sits on what today is called palestinian land, and George Bush and Olmert would hand it away for grushim, or not even that, just the promise of grushim.
