Weekly Updates – Jerusalem September 2, 2019
Dear Aardvark Families,
We are having an exciting and interesting first day here at Aardvark Jerusalem! All the students have arrived from the airport safe and sound! Our building is abuzz with students getting to know each other. Throughout the day, the students have had time to unpack and rest, and we treated them to falafel and shawarma for lunch.
After our opening dinner tonight, the staff and I met with the students to discuss the coming days in a bit more detail. We will also be getting to know each other through a number of activities planned by the counsellors (madrichim) and by playing some team building games. Our orientation is packed with sessions that will help the students become better acquainted with our program and our neighbourhood. The highlight this week will surely be our overnight trip to the North where we will be meeting all the Tel Aviv students as well. And, Shabbat in Jerusalem will undoubtedly be a highlight as well!
Each week, I will be sending out the schedule for the following week. I will also give you fun updates and highlights from the past and following weeks throughout the semester. We are all looking forward to a wonderful year with your children and to sharing it with you virtually as well!
