I would be remiss if I did not open this blog entry by talking extensively about coffee and cake. You see, all of us here in Israel have had two things uniting us over the past few days. The first is coffee. The second: cake. On the itinerary, there are many exciting activities listed, many things to look forward to. However, I believe all of us on this trip can agree that the most exciting event is the breaking of cake, and the embibing of coffee. We got to sleep in a bit, getting up in time for this hearty shabbat breakfast at 10:30am.
