ARTEL 2015 :
By : Oren Kornfeld & Erica Veltman
On July 13th, we had the opportunity to explore Jerusalem along with our host families. They took us to the expansive Shuk (almost the equivalent of Kings Plaza), however is not indoors and is not nearly as nice. It's also pretty easy to bargain in the Shuk. Not only did the host families take us to the Shuk, but they showed us their favorite spots all over Jerusalem. Along our journey through the city, our entire group stumbled upon a street performer. Eventually I (Oren) joined the performer in singing "One Day" by Akon ft. Matisyahu. A few minutes later, our entire group performed both "What a Wonderful World" & our favorite, "Wake Me Up" featured above. This was definitely one of the most amazing experiences we've had on our journey through this beautiful country, also known as Israel. During that moment, we truly felt like family. This will definitely be something that we'll remember for years to come.
