Shalom Parents, Students, Partners, and Staff!
This month on Aardvark Israel was very exciting, with the arrival of more than 160 students from all around the world, starting their Fall programs. The students settled into their new apartments, started getting to know their new flatmates, toured around the neighborhoods, and started their local experience.
The Chagim arrived, mentioning new beginnings in symbolic, wonderful timing. Some of our students were hosted for Rosh HaShana by relatives, some were hosted by other families, and some took the initiative and organzied their own holiday plans. Living it up like independents or what?!
Yom Kippur arrived shortly after, with fasting and optional prayers led by the madrichim. After that, as is customary, our students built their Sukkot with Gabe, our Jewish life coordinator.
