Pacific Northwest began their morning by davening shacharit and learning about Rosh Chodesh, a New Month. Then, they were off for an awesome day! They went on an Underground Tour,  a guided walking tour beneath the city’s sidewalks and streets, saw the cute neighborhood of Pioneer Square, and then visited Pikes Place, an outdoor market and the home of the original Starbucks, which is still open today! In the evening, they met up with Bus C at the Mariner’s baseball game! It was the perfect ending to a full and fun day.

Bus C began their morning by davening shacharit and learning about Rosh Chodesh, a New Month. They also briefly discussed the 9 days of Av which is a time of mourning for the destruction of the first and second Holy Temples and also about eicha, which they will read on Tisha B’Av. Then they were off for their day of fun! First, they visited the amazing Space Needle and then ventured to the Experience Music Project (EMP). It’s an amazing   museum dedicated to contemporary popular culture and a place where they can record their very own music videos! After that, they went to Pike’s Place which is an awesome market and the home of the original Starbucks, still open today! In the evening, the group went to a Mariner’s baseball game with the Pacific Northwest Wheels trip which was the perfect end to their fun day.

Bus H woke up in beautiful Atlanta, GA ready for an exciting day! First, they davened shacharit and because this morning was Rosh Chodesh, they had the chance to learn more about  that from the staff members. Later on, they had a full day of tours: First, CNN and then World of Coca-Cola, where they learned about the history of this famous brand and enjoy the taste of it along the way. Also, they visited Martin Luther King’s grave and museum to show the legacy he left behind. In the evening, the group went to Stone Mountain for an awesome light show. Fantastic!

This morning, Bus E davened shacharit and welcomed the New Month, Rosh Chodesh. After eating breakfast and making lunches, the group was off to Toronto for the Hockey Hall of Fame. After getting the grand tour, they went to Eaton Centre to eat lunch, shop, and have some free time. After that, they headed to see the large and in charge CN Tower. In the evening, the Wheelniks returned to their host shul, ate dinner, and had a super fun evening program! Sounds like a great day for Bus E, eh?

It was a great Monday for Bus B in Amarillo, TX! In the morning, they davened shacharit and learned more blessings in the Amidah. Also, it was Rosh Hodesh, so the group learned a little bit about what that is and about, ya’aleh viyavo, the words you say to welcome the New Month prayer in the Amidah. After eating breakfast and making lunches, the group headed to the Route 66 Museum and then channeled their inner adventurous selves for the Amarillo Jeep Tours. They got to experience Texas’ beautiful scenery and cliffs while sitting back in the comfortable Jeeps! Later in the evening, the group did laundry and had didactic encounters to get to know each other even better than they already do. Yeehaw!

The group arrived safely in the Holy Land! They headed straight to the Fuchsburg Center in Jerusalem where they will be staying for the next few nights, to have a much-needed nap and time to settle down. They had a very relaxing afternoon in which a very special guest, Rabbi Dave Levy, Director of USY,  spoke to the group. Tonight the group will be going on a short tour of the neighborhood before having an early bed time and waking up bright and early.

Today the group had an exciting and fun day in Eilat! They went snorkeling and observed the sea landscape in the Red Sea (which is in fact blue!). Then they went to the underwater observatory, where they saw sharks, tortoises, and an entire array of fish. They had a delicious lunch in the Hallelujah restaurant followed by a little time to relax. They all then spent some time practicing for Ha’event before going on an awesome disco boat ride around Eilat!
