Usually, on Shabbatot, each bus is in its own youth hostel running its own program. However, for one energy-filled and inspirational Shabbat in Jerusalem, we bring everyone together. Friday afternoon, we bus into the Old City. Following a Mifkad, we join together for Kabbalat Shabbat at the Kotel. There is nothing quite like bringing in Shabbat in this unique and spiritual setting, surrounded by Jews from around the world.
The rest of Shabbat is spent in Kiryat Moriah where we have meaningful Tefillot, song-filled meals and discussions about the significance and complexities of Jerusalem. Shabbat closes with slow shira at the Tayelet, a beautiful panoramic outlook of Jerusalem. As the golden reflection of the setting sun transitions into the night’s lights of Jerusalem, we join together as a group for this very special moment.
