On my first trip to Israel, when I was 16, we were taken to a henna for Yemenite Jews. Part of the evening includes spreading a yellow-brown paste on your hand and leaving it for a few minutes - it stains the hand for a bit of time (I'll let you know how long). They explained tonight - if you aren't married, this will help you meet your intended; if you are married, it will increase your livelihood. Whatever the reason or result, it was an amazingly fun evening. Plus, it is always hard to get everyone together and get a picture. We didn't totally succeed, but we got close.
So - a cultural journey, a mixing of traditions tonight - in pictures.
