Shalom aleichem! I’m Anya, a junior at Columbia University in the Winter Ulpan and Semester Abroad program at the University of Haifa International School. Join me in my weekly vlogs as I explore the city of Haifa and beyond!
This week in hebrew class, I learned the word Nazareth comes from the hebrew root for descendant, netzer, which relates to the word for Christianity, natzrut! I was astonished by the harmonious tension of the city, how existence in a holy space is just the same as anywhere else. The mosaics at the Basilica of the Annunciation absolutely took my breath away. Depictions of mother Mary from dozens of Christian communities around the word made me marvel at mankind’s unity in diversity.
