Tonight was fun. The HUC Class of 2012 celebrated Havdalah, the separation of Shabbat from the new week to come, with many alumni of HUC. It was an ice cream Havdalah. We had lots of fun, and Carlie had a great time pouring the ice cream all over herself! Having ice cream and celebrating Havdalah while overlooking the walls of Old Jerusalem was a tremendous experience, one I am sure will remain with me as a memory for a long time.
I'll write more tomorrow after the first day of the Hebrew Ulpan. Word is that I will be exhausted, but I'll make time to write more.
