Bus B  started off their day with a great alternative Shaharit service, where they learned prayers in sign language and also filled out their Tefillah journals. Following this, the group had a long drive from Reno to Salt Lake City. Later, once they arrive in Utah, the group will learn from a speaker about the connection between Mormonism and Judaism. The group can’t wait to learn about this interesting connection!

Bus B had an exciting second day in San Francisco! They began with a moving Rosh Hodesh service this morning in which they carved their interpretations of how the moon looked into Oreos! Following this, the group headed to the super cool Exploratorium a museum of science, art, and human perception. Afterward, the group will head to the famous Fisherman’s Wharf to see the sites and sounds of busy San Francisco and then to Ghirardelli Square! To cap off their day, the group will head to do some Shabbat shopping for themselves and for their Shabuddies. Bus B can’t wait for another invigorating Shabbat within their new community. Shabbat Shalom!

Bus B left Los Angeles after an amazing week of seeing their friends from other buses and headed up north to San Francisco. Before they did this though, they continued their tradition of “Thankful Things Thursdays,” thinking back on a fruitful week surrounded by a community they’ve come to know and love. Later, the group had an eye-opening tour at Google, one of the most innovative companies in the world. Bus B cannot wait to spend their 4th Shabbat together in beautiful Northern California!

Today Bus B got up early for what is one of the most fun days on Wheels: Disney Day! Before they got to the park, they had a lively Shaharit service where they were lucky to be joined by former director of USY, Jules Gutin, who taught and prayed with them! Bus B had a fantastic day with Mickey and Co. as they rode the rides and experienced all the fun at this fantastic park. Almost as great as the park was the chance to meet up with friends from the other Wheels buses who joined them at Disney to share in the fun. In the evening, the group will have a chance to see the beautiful Disney fireworks display. After a long day the group will return to their hotel for the evening.
