LUN Day 1

The Jewish Robot relaxes with a copy of PresenTense Magazine at Newark International Airport

I finally managed to find an Ethernet port in the hotel we are staying at in K'far Giladi, so here's the first set of photos from the Leading Up North trip. The first day is still a blur to me, having lasted over 24 hours with no sleep. We arrived at Newark International Airport at 9:30am on December 26, and landed at Ben Gurion Airport at 7am the next day. Approximately 300 passengers, consisting of members of ROI120, Kivun, and Hillel students were ushered into buses and driven up north to K'far Giladi, where we attended orientation meetings. I'll go into more description in further blog posts, but for now I'm posting photos for my fellow LUN participants' enjoyment.

HAHA! That top pic is a riot. Hope Ariel isn't insulted, Maxim is great :)

I believe Mr. Beery set up that photo and in fact may aspire to Maxim quality--at least in terms of design.

LOL. Throw in a couple of semi-naked chicks in PresenTense and he'll bump up his readership ;)
(Esther, hope you are having a blast!!)

JR I'm glad that you're running amok in Israel and not wasting your youth working. And I'll buy a copy of Jewy magazine when Shansta goes topless for the centerfold.
