On Friday, we traveled to our sister region near Afula to visit our former young Israeli emissary, Gal Ron, and the kids at Gan Ner. We were greeted with snacks which we ate hungrily. We are always hungry, even though we are eating really well! The kids arrived in small groups so they didn't overwhelm us, and introduced themselves. We played several games together to get to know one another. It was a lot of fun and we laughed a lot. After a very short time we were all friends. We broke into small groups for some other activities and an opportunity to really get to converse with each other.
At the end of our time there no one wanted to leave. However, we were heading to our Host Shabbat with much anticipation. Everyone is ready for a little change of pace and a little extra sleep. Have a great Shabbat.
