Shabbat in Jerusalem

So I know its been awhile since my last blog, but I'm gonna give you all a quick update...

I landed back in Israel on 6/7/08, please note that this is the European date and not the American date. (In Europe its Day/Month/Year.) Anyway, I landed in Tel Aviv and spent the night in an air conditioned dormitory at Hayarkon 48. (Israel's most famous Hostel.) It was an uneventful night with not much to talk about.

When I arrived in Jerusalem on the 7th, life became a whirlwind of activity. I've gotten a new cellphone and am looking for a place to live permanently. Its been quite crazy. There's all sorts of new things to do and many challenges await.

I still need to:

Get my Student Loans to come through.
Get a Student Visa for Israel
Get a Place to live permanently
Get class schedules
Buy books
Generally get myself in school mode

Its going to be an interesting few weeks and I'm looking forward to the challenge.

Tonight is my first Shabbat as an HUC student and I've waited for this for a long time. I hope you all have a Good Shabbos!
