we also made UBLICH (cornstarch and water, the exact measures are unknown at this time).

Wednesday is for exploration.....

of all the diffrent options of Judiasiam available in Los Angeles ... and when U want to C whats available in LA where else would you but Chabad of UCLA

the Rabbi explained how the college student is always welcome for any of the holidays and you can always stop by on a Friday evening for a good home cooked Shabbat Dinner.

He even gave us shabbat souviniers.

and after that we got to see UCLA and it is fun!!!!!




After UCLA we were off to Jewish Home for the Aging with Mishlot Minot a little singing and just visiting with residents.

and it was only 4:00... we still had bowling to look forward to.

Tuesday is for comparisons

The morning started at Stephen S. Wise. Besides it being a beautiful day ...we had a beautiful view of the San Fernando Valley

After a morning of learning about Reform Judaism in Los Angeles we took a ride on the bus...

and went to Oaks Christian (one of the L.A. Hebrew High sites)

Where our partners experienced Hebrew High and we saw (well those of us who don't go to Oaks Christan) got to see how nice.... their class rooms are.

but now it is time to go home and start planing for Purim

If it's Monday it must be...

Time to get on the bus
and go see L.A.
Well actually Wilshire Blvd.

We went to 6505 and heard about what they do for Israel, the USA and the rest of the world.

We played with monopoly money to see if we could do it any better and you know....it's not that easy to decide where the money goes.

And now we can say that we have seen all the BIG synagogues on Wilshire. We saw Sinai on Sunday when we arrived so today we did Wilshire Blvd Synagogue and The Sephardic Temple.

The styles were diffrent but they were both very very BIG
