Xmas Midnight Mass - The Monastery of Silence, Latrun, Israel

Last night, Xmas eve, I tagged along to a midnight mass held in a monastery in Latrun, not far from Modiin. Being Jewish, I have never been to anything like that before, and I must say it was really interesting! (Except for the incense that made me feel nauseous ;) Being a photographer really gets me to places I would never have dreamed of going to!
Anyway, this monastery is also called The Monastery of Silence, as apparently the monks there have taken upon themselves the vow of silence. It was founded in 1890 by the Trappist order, and this is their only monastery in Israel.
