A good resource, but I wish it was more accessible to people who aren't fluent in Hebrew. The biggest part of the book is a collection of blessings to say at various places in Israel, and most of them don't have full transliterations (saying them in English wouldn't necessarily feel the same). Also, I wish there was at least one map with English names instead of just Hebrew without vowels and in a very small font. Still, this would be a good supplement for those who already have a regular travel guide but want to add a spiritual dimension to their trip. ( )
