Shabbat in Jerusalem is always special and ours' was no exception. Friday night we joined the Kol Haneshama teens again. They lead a service and then we were hosted in their homes for Shabbat dinner. This was a real highlight. We all came back to Beit Shmuel and with great stories, happy bellies and new friends. Laughing and talking went late into the night.

This morning we celebrated Shabbat with a wonderful view of the city. We each took a turn holding the Torah with our eyes on Jerusalem.

After lunch we went to the Save a Heart house. We brought lots of toys and got to play with beautiful children either just before or just after receiving heart surgery. There were kids and moms from all over the world. It was great to be a small part of this wonderful organization.
