This morning during shacharit, the group learned about tallit, tefillin and the importance of making your own space for private prayer. The day was filled with trips to The Newseum, an interactive museum of news and journalism, The Holocaust Museum, and then some free time at the mall. They finished this great day off with a Bus B pool party and getting excited to head to Raleigh!

Bus B is officially on the road and ready for summer! Yesterday was a minor fast day on the Jewish calendar and the group spent some time during shacharit learning about the customs of a fast day. They enjoyed their first shacharit service together and are looking forward to having a nice community to pray with for the rest of the summer. Later on, they toured Intercourse Pretzel Factory and got the chance to become professional pretzel twisters. After that, they ventured to Herr’s factory to see exactly how potato chips are made. Their evening program consisted of learning the tradition of Hachnasat Orchim, being good and welcoming guests. Also, the group wrote letters to themselves for the end of the summer, all while eating Chinese food and decorating Chinese lanterns to fit the dinner theme.
