We are having an exciting and interesting first day here at Aardvark Jerusalem! The students arrived safe and sound. Our building is abuzz with students getting to know each other. They have had time to unpack and rest, and we treated them to falafel and shawarma for lunch.
Tonight, after our opening dinner, the staff and I meet with the students to discuss the upcoming days in a bit more 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 that will help the students become better acquainted with our program and our neighborhood. This week’s highlight is sure to be our overnight trip to the south where we will be meeting all the Tel Aviv students as well. Shabbat in Jerusalem will undoubtedly be a highlight as well!
Our address is: 34 Yossi Ben Yoezer, Knisa Gimel, Jerusalem 9330154
Each week, I will send out the schedule for the following week. I will also share fun updates and highlights from the past week 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!
