Kitah Chet returned this week from a non-stop tour of New York and Washington, D.C. The trip covered the usual tourist spots, such as the Statue of Liberty and the White House, as well activities that focused on Jewish history, such as a Chabad tour of Brooklyn and the United States Holocaust Museum. In addition, they were able to forge friendships with the two other Bay area Jewish schools that joined in on the tour, Wornick Jewish Day School and Gideon Hausner Day School.
The days were long and full of adventure, learning, and friendship. A truly memorable experience!
“When I first arrived at the airport, I didn’t know anyone from the other schools. By the end of the journey, I met a lot of new people and made a lot of new friends. It was hard to say goodbye to them.” — Cooper
“One of the main things that I enjoyed the most were the bus rides and our bus driver, Tyree. Everytime we got onto the bus, Tyree put on music and always made the effort to have fun with us. Even when we were exhausted, Tyree always cheered us up.” –Lena
“I had a lot of fun walking around on the various streets, memorials, and buildings. A particular favorite of mine was the Empire State. At first, the idea of being that high was a little frightening to me, but it was really easy to get comfortable once reaching the top. From the 86th floor we could see all of New York, and that was really cool.” — Amitai
“I had lots of fun talking to my friends and laughing with Morah Danielle and Mr. O.” — Silver
“Mount Vernon was very special for me because I love history and I was always intrigued by George Washington’s life. When walking to the museum, we passed by the farm, which still has animals. In the museum we saw all about George Washington’s life. It was very cool; I was even sworn in as President of the United States!” — Ethan M.
