A view of a Miklat

Imagine the scene... You're in Tzefat during the war, the siren just went off, and it's time to run to the miklat, the shelter.

First, you pass a sign pointing the way:

Then, you make it past first one set of air vents...

... and another, and you quickly make sure the family makes it down the steps into the shelter.

The din in the shelter is palpable, as is the tension in the people around you. Finally, when all is clear you emerge.

This is what's left of the house above "Miklat 8":
Just across the street from Rabbi and Mrs. Hecht.
