Shabbat in Yerushalayim

iceisrael August 7, 2016

This past Shabbos was prodigious. First, we davened mincha and Kabbalat Shabbat on a rooftop overlooking the old city. Then we made our way to the Kotel, where I got my first view of the age old site in the dark.  The contrast of the pearl colored wall against the night sky made it all the more so astounding. After eating dinner at the OU center, we took a nice long walk through Jerusalem back to our hotel. The next day we davened at our hotel, went to the local park (where I refined my Frisbee skills), and got to hear from a soldier and former soldier who is currently studying at the Technion. One thing is for certain: while this may have been my last weekend with ICE, it gave me a feeling of  satisfactory finality.
