FROM RABBI WEINBERG:

Hi!

It's about an hour from Shabbat, so It's around noon in Newton. Just wanted to send you an e-mail to tell you that the trip was not to be believed. Last Wednesday, we were able to go to Ben Gurion airport. There was a huge hangar with hundreds of chairs, Three planes landed almost at the same time - one from the U.S., one from Canada and one from England. About 550 olim chadashim got off and mingled with the hundreds of people waiting for them. There was plenty of food and drinks, an army choir/band performed and Olmert spoke. It was really unforgettable.

We're fourteen people tonight at my daughter's house. I'm really looking forward to this last Shabbat of the trip, but miss you and hope things will go well in shul.

I'm scheduled to leave Monday morning (early!) and arrive at Logan Monday afternoon.

Looking forward to seeing you in a few days and Shabbat Shalom .... rnw

P.S. Regards to all.

P.P.S. Made a mi shebayrach for the shul at the Kotel yesterday.

P.P.P. S. Used all my "shaliach mitzvah" money to help the soldiers.
