Masada, Israel

My very first card from Israel compliments Leiah.  Leiah says that this is the the most famous sites in Israel with ancient ruins going back to the time of King Herod.  It overlooks the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth and the biblical location of Sodom and Gomorrah.  Herod built a palace at Masada where later Jews fled there during times of Roman persecution.

Thanks very much for the wonderful card and the bit of history Leiah.
