Anyhoo, so after watching the bachelorette Ryan came over and we went to the falafel place across the street from me. We had an interesting talk about HUC inbreeding...i know you're proud mom and dad.
Sara then came over and we all went to Kol Hanishama for Shabbat Services. This is a phenom reform synagogue about 10 minute walk from me. Services were great, they had all of us HUC students stand up. Then Nathan, Mike, Laura, Dana, Ricky, and Naomi came back to my place for dinner. Yes, I made dinner :) I made a caprese salad (Tomatoes, basil, mozzarella cheese and balsamic) and pasta with either olive with basil or maranara sauce. Everything turned out great! I was very proud of myself.
Mike and Ricky surprised me with a cake for my birthday, even though it was a day late. Brownie points to whoever can guess what kind of candles they put in the cake. Now we're all just hanging out at my apartment listening to music, playing board games and talking.
Tomorrow some people were talking about going to Tel Aviv and hanging out on the beach to watch the world cup, so I will be joining them! I am so excited to get out of the city for the day. Not that Jerusalem isn't a beautiful city, it will just be nice to get out and about before classes start. It's weird being in a country where the world cup is actually a big deal.
Before I go to Tel Aviv though, I plan on going to HUC for morning services. Ben is going to be singing so I am really looking forward to hearing him.
Well I am going to enjoy the rest of my evening and go to bed soon. Keep checking for more posts. Also, once classes start on sunday don't be expecting the daily updates you are all receiving now...a time is soon coming where I will need to be done.
Tomorrow / Sunday I will post pictures from Shabbat Dinner and the beach! Miss you all!! xoxo
