Days 21-23: The Last Days of Ulpan

Going to try to stay as up-to-date as I can on these blogs. Going to try writing after the end of every day, but not uploading until there is a substantial amount of information. Well, that’s how I’m going to try this blog, so let’s see how it goes. Continue reading Days 21-23: The Last Days of Ulpan

Days 19 & 20: The Not-So-Shabbat-y Weekend

Powering through this last blog post after midnight here. I really want to be caught up so I don’t need to reach back a week into my memory and get things wrong. I’m all about the truth here on this blog, and I don’t want to give you false information about my trip! I may leave a few details out, withhold information here and there, but I never want to lie. Okay, I may be getting a bit wacky in these late hours. Not too much happened, so I think I can bang out this blog post for sure. Here we go!

Days 17 & 18: Rosh HaShana in Jerusalem

So this will be yet another blog post without any pictures. I mean, if there were any blog post where it was acceptable to be lacking photos, I think it’d be this one.

I will explain more in detail as the blog goes on. Enjoy! Continue reading Days 17 & 18: Rosh HaShana in Jerusalem

Struggles of technology. Luckily, I remember my last weekend very vividly, even though not a ton actually happened and there are no pictures… Here you go: Continue reading Days 12-13: The Day(s) of Rest

Day 11: The Salty Sea

As you may be able to tell by the title of this post (and if you read yesterday’s post), today I went to Ein Gedi and Yam HaMelach, the Dead Sea. However, the word “Yam” in Hebrew means “sea” and the word “HaMelach” means “the salty.” So literally, Yam HaMelach translates into The Salty Sea. And THAT is the reason of the title of my post. Okay, I’m babbling now. Continue reading Day 11: The Salty Sea
