Massive cancelations of flights coming out of Chicago, major traffic coming into JFK, and an overheated, overcrowded terminal did not deter Bus 321 from reaching Israel. At approximately 1:45pm, local time, our flight touched down at Ben Gurion. We are ready to receive our Taglit!
The entire plane applauded as the wheels hit the runway. After passing through customs, we were greeted with song and dance by the Shorashim staff and some new Israeli friends. As I write this blog entry we are en-route to our official opening ceremonies taking place by the sea near Tel Aviv.
