Over the weekend we visited both Kever Rochel and Me’arat HaMachpailah, two very holy sites that mark the final resting place of our patriarchs and matriarchs. It was so incredible to bring Judaism to life through seeing these historic sites with our own eyes and being able to daven to Hashem directly in their merit. We then spent a beautiful, holy, and uplifting shabbos in Yerushalayim, which began with a meaningful Kabbalas Shabbos davening at the Kotel, dancing and singing alongside soldiers, Birthright groups and other holy women who helped to make up our electic tefillah group. The experience was so moving! We then ate dinner in the Cardo (cool!), after which we enjoyed a nice, long walk home. Shabbos was filled with singing and learning, and afterwards, we had a rockin’ GIVE talent show (because we’re oh so talented!) And then made our way for a midnight Kotel run! It was so inspirational to see the Kotel still packed so late at night and to know that there are constantly holy people davening on our behalf. Wow!
