Monastery of St. John in the Wilderness


 Next to the world class medical center of Hadassah Ein Kerem in the moshav of Even Sapir hides the picturesque Monastery of St. John in the Wilderness. This past Friday on one of the rainiest days of the winter. I was able to visit it all by myself; the rain has stopped for awhile and a special kind of silence engulfed the place and gave me a chance to reflect on its poetics of space
