The Barley is Aviv!!!


I hit the ground running yesterday (Mar 25) after the 29-hour journey from China to Israel. Keith Johnson, Devorah Gordon and Amir Shaag joined me on an impromptu Aviv Search. We found large quantities of Aviv barley at Ein Mabua and in the Jordan Valley. I have posted photos of the Aviv barley at:


So phase 1 of my New Moon Mission to Israel 2014 (finding the Aviv barley) is officially complete. Now for phase 2, attempting to sight the new moon on March 31, 2014.
