Flying Over Tel Aviv

After 15 hours in the air, I can definitely say the highlight of the ride was flying over Tel Aviv. The sun had already set, and the city’s lights were shining bright against the evening sky. After landing at Ben Gurion, we claimed our luggage in the nearly empty airport, and we drove to Yerushalayim. At around 10:30 we arrived at the Kotel and davened along with the large crowd of Jews already there. At the wall, personal notes were crammed into every crevice. So many people had tried to place there notes in the wall that they overflowed and littered the floor. At around eleven o’clock, Rabbi Sabo took us for a delicious dinner-lamb and turkey shawarma. I can’t wait for tomorrow which includes the water tunnels, a water hike and preparations for Shavuot.
