Unique Israel trip brings sense of miraculous to participants

For Marcia Diane, the highlight of her trip to Israel last year was a visit to the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron, where Abraham and most of his storied kin are said to be buried. Inside the building’s thick stone walls are several cenotaphs, empty tombs erected to honor a person’s memory. As Diane approached the red and white cenotaph of Abraham, she said something miraculous occurred.

“When I was standing there, relaxing and taking it in, I smelled roses really strongly,” Diane said. “I wasn’t sure what it was. I thought maybe it was incense, but I was looking around and I couldn’t see any.”
