Three flights and about twenty hours later, we arrive in Tel Aviv! And once the wheels hit the tarmac, it was all business. We hustled through customs to baggage claim, hopped on our tour bus, and to our first site we went. It was to the city of Joppa along Mediterranean coast. After touring the area, we checked into our hotel – around 8 PM.
A fabulous Shabbat Friday night dinner could not have been a better welcome! Followed by drinks with friends and cigars outside listening to the waves crash on the coast, talking about the days ahead, was the best way to end the journey there and the best beginning of what was to come.
