Costumed performers walk to the stage for a dress rehearsal of Giacomo Puccini's Tosca ahead of the Israeli Opera Festival at Masada, which begins Thursday, June 1, 2015. According to the ancient historian Josephus, Masada was the site of a Roman siege that ended in 73 AD when hundreds of Jewish rebels committed mass suicide rather than fall as slaves to the Romans. Built by King Herod as a winter palace between 37-31 BC, Masada is a UNESCO World Heritage site and has for decades been a source of archaeological fascination. Picture taken June 1, 2015.

Children pray during a religious lesson in a public elementary school in Warsaw
Children pray during a religious lesson in a public elementary school in Warsaw October 4, 2012. Society in Poland is changing and with it, the relationship between the Polish people and the Catholic church. In this country where, since the end of Communist rule, prime ministers have sought the blessing of the church before making important decisions, Catholicism is losing its influence. Opinion polls show that the number of people who go to church or pray regularly is in decline. And now a series of initiatives - on in-vitro fertilisation (IVF), ending state subsidies for the church, and homosexuality - is challenging Catholicism's role at the heart of the state.
