Hello families and friends,
As our class prepares to leave early this Sunday morning for Jerusalem, we're learning both about the important themes of our studies and the amusing details of our journey. For example, fanny packs came included with our international rent-a-cell-phones...but we've also been discussing the ancient history of the city, the connections of the three major faiths (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) to this incredible place, and the significance and power of memory in creating a sense of holiness.
We're so excited to get going! As of now, the plan is that one (or more!) of us will be posting each day during our trip. Rachel has volunteered to help upload photos, so hopefully those will be available too!
Madeline and the crew: Cantor Bob, Will, Ivan, Ben, Robert, Rachel, Candace, Zehra, Irtefa, and Jenni
