Had a great tour of the Old City today, including the “Kotel HaKatan” and the “Ohel Yitzchak” Synagogue, with one guest, while the others helped build a pioneering family a new bathroom!

We had an AMAZING Shavuos holiday at the Jerusalem Heritage House. Packed house with “lone soldiers” and Birthright Israel extenders, various Jewish educational opportunities throughout the Old City, festive dairy meal, and prayers at the Kotel HaKatan (the “Little Western Wall).
