Instagram of the Week: Desert Road

Tomorrow is Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement, one of the holiest days in the Jewish religion. Jews observe this holy day of atonement and repentance by fasting and praying for 24 hours and asking for forgiveness from those we believe we’ve wronged. While we’re not very devout or religious we think there’s something really beautiful about taking a pause from our hectic lives and taking time to atone for what we believe we’ve done wrong and to appreciate everything we have.


This picture was taken in Israel’s southern desert, on the long road that leads from the South to Tel Aviv, in the center. To us this picture symbolizes the long and winding, yet rewarding journey we’ve had in the past year.

We wish you all a wonderful weekend and easy fast to those who observe Yom Kippur.

V & R

  1. I like the analogy you made re: the winding road and your accomplishments. Great shot! Looks like the Arizona desert.

    • That’s true, Israel has alot of desert landscape that looks like Arizona. We’ve both been to Arizona and it’s beautiful!

    • Thank you darling! same to you, shana tova!

  2. Wishing you a thoughtful Yom Kippur :=) Pausing is great for the soul.
