Diller Youth Congress - here we are!!

Today we arrived at the Diller Congress!! We met the other delegations and watched some videos on Israel and the projects of some of the teens from other cities. Then we were split up into groups and played tons of ice breakers and get-to-know-others games. Don’t worry mom and dad—we’ll teach you how to play them when we get home… So far we’ve met tons of new people (mostly from within our groups but the number of new facebook friends will only increase as the week continues!)

*beware: some teens are steadily approaching 1000!

The next few days will be full of meeting new friends, not only from North America but from Israel too! Who knows, maybe by Friday we’ll even gain an extra few friend requests from the Israeli soldiers on campus (of course we won’t accept until after Shabbos!!). Until next time…………..
