Italy 2A – Update #1

Dear Friends and Families,

We started off our Italy adventure when we landed in Milan. We were all very excited to shop in the fashion capital! We got our first tastes of the amazing pizza, pastas, and gelato. After eating way too much, we walked to a beautiful park and played name games and icebreakers to get to know one another. Then, we came back for some rest and relaxation and a lovely pesto lasagna dinner. To end our day, we played some more games to break the ice and joined together in watching the ever-exciting World Cup. We were able to make connections and become a community.

Next we traveled to Verona to see the balcony of the famous play by Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet. We then ventured by bus and train to the beautiful island of Venice. It was here where we went to see the Jewish quarter, Jewish museum and three different synagogues.

Later, we had some free time to shop around the town of Venice. We had a scrumptious personal pizza dinner and then came back to the hotel after a very busy day. We finished with closure activities and ended our night on a positive note.

We are so excited to enter our first Shabbat experience as a new family. We have built strong bonds with one another and look forward to getting stronger making everlasting memories in the week to come!

CIAO!
