    This book is insane! This 71 year old Jewish grandma uncovered a crazy story about her family. Her mother and her were never close and she always sensed there was some kind of secret. You won't believe this. Her father and orthodox Jew killed his 16 year old daughter near there home in Wyoming. We will be traveling independently, two nights in Tel Aviv, 5 nights in Jerusalem so hopefully time for one or two side trips from there. I purchased the Eyewitness Top Ten pocket guide to take with me but I am finding it less helpful for pre trip planning.
