We are in the final days of preparation. In just a month, we'll embark on the journey of a lifetime. We're counting the days now until the plane departs, and though the time is short, our departure date still seems so far away. There are many things to do yet, but soon, everything will be ready. Stay tuned for more updates, and I promise that the posts will get much more exciting the closer we get to departure. Until then, Shalom Alechem!

Do you think it's possible to add a link to a Hebrew dictionary if you're going to use a lot of Hebrew words while on your trip?

I will try to remember to translate any Hebrew words I use so that everyone will know what I am referring to. For reference, "Shalom Alechem" is a customary greeting. It means "Peace be upon you." The traditional response is "Alechem Shalom."

Last minute notes will be given and a Shabbat meal served. Shabbat is a time of rest before the L-rd commonly called sabbath. All but one team member will be able to attend this meet and greet.
