GAN EDEN

Oh the garden of delights. “In the Messianic Age, God will establish peace for [the nations] and they will sit at ease and eat in Gan Eden” (Exodus Rabbah 15:7, cf. Genesis 2:10-14 and Ezekiel 31). Gan Eden (גַּן עֵדֶן,) is Hebrew for the Garden of Eden or the Garden of God. With the sun out this weekend we spent some time with the familia at Green Point Park returning to a primordial innocence. Maybe that return is why so many people find such joy and recreation when visiting parks. I thought I should share our own enjoyment of those green spaces through this photo tour of our travels to six iconic cities across the globe.
