Chesed Mission 2013/5773: Day 1

The 11th annual Chesed Mission took off on Tuesday night, January 15th for a non-stop chesed experience in Israel. A group of 42 students and 6 faculty members, led by Rabbi Naftali Besser, decided to spend their winter break in Israel visiting the sick, dancing with soldiers, volunteering in soup kitchens, interacting with special children, and so much more. As soon as we landed in Israel we went to Kotel to pray Avrit. Three students who have never been to Israel expressed their emotions by  kissing the floor by the kotel. We then checked into our hotel and went out to dinner on Emek Refaim. I am looking forward to tomorrow when #TheMission really begins and "keeps on going and going and going..."  ~Victor Dweck
