Getting Ready!

 As we are getting our bags packed, the last evening before the big journey, I think back to earlier this fall when the planing began.

 Here we have a group of students, in place of going to some beach for break, are taking the time to go to a place that give us a shudder, yet going to share, going to show, we walk the streets, proud, we are part of the major revival of Jewish life in the place they tried to erase it.

 We will make a difference, meeting with university students, young children and adults, spending Shabbat in a place where they tried to erase it. Lighting a candle in a place they tried to extinguish it. We Are alive, well strong, we are back and stronger then ever.

 Am Yisroel Chai!
