Well it’s Sunday morning here in Israel, and now that Shabbat is over, it is finally starting to sink in that I’m really back in Israel. Sitting next to my sister on the flight over (thanks to the awesome guy who switched seats with me!) we both commented over and over how unreal it was that we had crossed into Israel airspace, that we landed in Israel, that we were really in Israel.
After a wonderful Havdallah that many participants said was their favorite part of Shabbat (mine too!) we wished everyone a Shavua Tov and headed to Tiberias for dinner. The rest of the trip won’t be anywhere near as relaxing has Shabbat, but that is what makes Shabbat special. We’re refreshed and ready to hit the ground running for the rest of an amazing trip!
