Shabbat Shalom!

They all had the opportunity to go on their own while looking at the gorgeous Crater Lake infont of them. Then, later in the day, the group did laundry and continued on in their long drive. In the evening, the group relaxed a bit in order to get ready for their fun filled day tomorrow.

Bus C is officially headed for Portland! Their days began with shacharit and continuing their learning of the Amidah prayer. After eating breakfast and making lunches, the group was off for a tour of Underground Seattle. It’s a guided walking tour beneath the city’s sidewalks and streets.. awesome! Then, their first stop in Portland was to see the Alpacas of Oregon. It’s one of the coolest experiences to be up close and personal with one of the cutest and most gentile creatures. Their camera rolls were definitely full after that! In the evening, the group went to Powell’s Bookstore, the famous house of books that has something for everyone.

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!

Bus C had a wonderful day in Spokane, Washington! They began with learning more blessings of the Amidah and then they were on their way to do some cherry picking. They each took a bag of cherries back with them and got to snack as they went. Then, they headed to Riverfront Park to eat lunch and have some free time. Later on, they had the pleasure of visiting Carr’s One of a Kind Museum which definitely proved to reflect its title. In the evening, they were hosted by Temple Beth Shalom for an absolutely delicious dinner and games. While they had some free time in between, they decorated their siddurim with the stickers they have picked up on their journey so far.
