Free Shabbat – Tovia Jacobs

iceisrael July 31, 2016

Akiva Levy and I spent our free weekend in a small Jewish community near Kfar Adumim. We slept through most of Shabbat, but we would make sure to wake up for shul whenever services were beginning. The shul itself was beautiful, but the A.C. was broken so the experience was obviously not as great as it could have been. Also, the walk to shul was really cool because there was an incredible view of the desert. After Shabbat, we took the bus to Ben Yehuda street and met up with some friends from the program. A couple hours later, we headed to the bus station and waited for twenty minutes just to see our bus speed by the bus stop without hesitation. We spent 150 shekel to take a cab back to the house at 1:00am. As you can see, my free weekend had its ups and downs but overall I had a great time.
