Kabbalah To Mingle With Buddhist Jaunt

What do Israel and India have in common with Istanbul and Amsterdam? Other than all starting with a vowel?

It’s where this Philadelphia lad is heading from Nov. 6 through Nov 18, creating a pilgrimage that will touch base with five of the World’s largest religions: Christianity and Judaism, as well as the Muslim and Hindu faiths, ending at the land where the Buddha gained enlightenment.

Tel Aviv will host an international Kabbalah meeting for students of Rav Michael Laitman and then it’s off to Jerusalem to visit Golgotha where Jesus was crucified, the wailing wall where the second Jewish Temple resided, as well as the Dome of the Rock where the Prohet Mohammed ascended. Delhi, India will be my next host country, where I will see the wonders guarded by Shiva and my favorite Hindu deity, Ganesha. I hope to meditate at the site of the old Bodhi tree (replaced by a new one) where the one most the World knows as the “Buddha” achieved enlightenment and then offered his first teachings.

I will then return and prepare for an even more exotic trip — downtown Cleveland, Ohio — at Xmas break with my son, Nicholas.

Here’s Wishing me “Bon Voyage!”
