So here I am, writing in my first blog. I'm hoping that I'll be able to keep a weblog of my journey to Russia and Israel with the JUF Rabbinic Mission. (If not, then you won't see any more postings! But they tell me that we'll have internet access in all our hotels....so maybe I can devote a few minutes to logging this trip for y'all to read!)
I haven't even left yet. In fact, I don't leave for one full week. Right now, it's almost Shabbat and I'm sitting at my desk getting ready for Shabbat to start! Regarding the upcoming trip -- I'm nervous and excited! I still have to pack, and I'm definitely monitoring the weather in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Jerusalem. How do you pack for such a diversity of climate? And with only 44 pounds!? Well, I'm sure it will involve buying a pair of shoes in Israel. Other than that, it's all up in the air!
Okay, so that's all for now in this blog. Hopefully you'll see more of me.
