We made it! After many hours of traveling, including a 12 hour flight from Atlanta to Tel Aviv we are finally here! We were served 2 meals on the long flight and had complimentary movies, games, and music. Most of us got through customs with no problem. On the way from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, we passed a memorial to 9/11, a memorial for the 1948 war, and the place wear Jesus was first seen after his resurrection.
Today is the Jewish holiday Shavuot so almost everything is closed. We are staying at Beit Yehudah in Jerusalem for the next few days.
