The First Day of Aardvark – Jerusalem
We are having an exciting and interesting first day here at Aardvark Jerusalem! Aside from one last flight scheduled to arrive late tonight, all the students have arrived safe and sound. Our building is a-buzz with students getting to know each other. Throughout the day, the students had time to unpack and rest, and we treated them to falafel and shwarma for lunch.
Tonight after our opening dinner, the staff and I meet with the students to discuss the upcoming days a bit more in detail. We will also be getting to know each other through a number of activities planned by the counselors (madrichim) and playing some team building games. Our orientation is packed with sessions which will help the students get better acquainted with our program and our neighborhood. The highlight this week will surely be our overnight trip to the south where we will be meeting all the Tel Aviv students as well. And, Shabbat in Jerusalem will undoubtedly be a highlight as well!
Our address is
34 Yossi Ben Yoezer, Knisa Gimel
Each week, I will send out the schedule for the following week. I will also share with you fun updates and highlights of week past and weeks to come throughout the semester. We are all looking forward to a wonderful year with your children and to sharing it with you virtually as well!
