USY on Wheels, Bus C

June 26, 2013

Bus C participated in a creative shacharit where they learned to wrap tefillin by practicing with fruit by the foot (also making a great pre-breakfast snack!) The group then wrote their own tefillat haderech, travelers prayer, and learned about the shma and tzitzi. The group was then on their way for very exciting trips to the Chalk Wall, Big Rubber Stamp, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where each kid took a pic with their favorite Hall of Fame inductee.  Finally, Bus C went bowling and played Whirly Ball, which is a super fun combination of lacrosse, bumper cars, and basketball. It was truly a great day!

Bus C 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. They spent the rest of the evening doing icebreakers and bonding as a group.
