JOLT Israel
Important Updated Information Regarding The Free Shabbos (and some other stuff…)

Shalom NCSY JOLT Israel Family,

I hope this email finds you well. Baruch Hashem we are 99% back on track and we are all excited to move forward.  Everyone feels great and relaxed in beautiful Kibbutz Lavi. The food is beyond awesome and everyone is eating and enjoying the hotel. Today is a relaxed day. We swam this morning and now we are onto the beautiful Rosh HaNikra and the Grotos there. The plan is to get back early for some well needed chill time. 

Last night we had an important group reflection session discussing our time with Simcha LaYeled. It was a closed and safe conversation that we all had together in which we spoke about our take aways from the week and how it impacted us. I was so proud to hear what each one of the kids had to say. It is truly remarkable to the growth and sensitivity of so many of our NCSY JOLT Israel participants. Many spoke about the difficulty of the language barrier and how they overcame it and others spoke about the way in which it helped to recalibrate the way they think about life and what they are appreciative of. I have been super busy and working on pretty much no sleep as many of you know (3 and 4 A.M. phone calls...seriously my pleasure as always) so I haven't had the time I need to send out my typical detailed emails. I hope to have time today to send out an email with more thoughts on our experiences and give you a State of the Union at the half way point of NCSY JOLT Israel. 

Regarding tomorrow, there has a been an important schedule change to accommodate some of the intricate logistics. We are going to be dropping off the kids in Jerusalem first. The plan is to be at the OU center at 5. It is located on Keren HaYesod. All the kids will leave their big luggage in storage there so that they don't have to schelp it with them. They will be packing their overnight bags tonight. We will be dropping off at the Alozorof station in Tel Aviv between 6:15 and 6:30.

Pickup in Jerusalem on Sunday morning will be at the OU center at 9:oo A.M. and at the Alozorof Station in Tel Aviv at about 11:00 A.M. 

If you have any questions please reach out to me. I am here for you like I am here for your children, so don't hesitate to be in touch. 

Thank you so much and I look forward to being touch with you soon.

With warmest wishes

-Rabbi Weinberg
