Below is a student response from the study abroad class: Excavating Tel Lachish, Israel, where students participated in excavating and analyzing artifacts with members of Hebrew University’s Field School.

The Adhan is the Islamic call to prayer. The words are beautiful, elegant, passionate, and a good wakeup call at 3 am. I woke up in the middle of the first verse while holding myself in the fetal position. I was shivering from the night cold this ancient city has been used to. This ancient city has seen destruction, its own reincarnation, and the diaspora of multiple faiths peacefully coexisting but with the exception of the various scrapes that occur within the market and a person’s own biased heart. I woke up to this call to prayer as a naturalist and found a beautiful moment within this religion I am not used to. Jerusalem, known for sand colored walls scared from ages of conflict, was now dyed green from the lights of Ramadan. Fireworks shot off with little flare though people celebrated the holiday equivalent to how Americans celebrate days honoring the country’s history. I smiled, though only half awake, and enjoyed these minutes of celebration just from empathic energy of the sounds of joy. I do not know who made these sounds, but I will never forget the bliss echoing through the building scattered desert.
