July 8: HaKotel!
July 8, 2014 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit
We made it! Finally, we were able to visit the city of Jerusalem! What an amazing and special experience for all. Upon entering the Jewish Quarter, the teens helped themselves to some much needed iced-coffee (kind of like a slush, but with coffee). Next, we walked around the Jewish Quarter, seeing the jewelry, fresh baked treats, but anxiously awaiting the high light…the wall. Closing our eyes, we were led by the rabbis to an overlook, and when we opened our eyes, in front of us was the Kotel. Such an unbelievable sight to see such a holy place and remember our history. The teens had time to pray, write notes, and soak in the experience.
After leaving the old city, the group went to Machane Yehuda, the open air street market, where everyone had lunch, tasted different nuts and spices, and saw many different types of people. For all of you mothers with children with nut allergies, don’t worry, everyone left completely fine!
Currently, we are on our way down to Kfar HaNokdim, on the East side of the country. We will be in Ketura and Eilat for the next 6 days before making our way up north.
Please stay tuned for pictures! As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact Alicia Felhandler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
