|The Cardo, Jerusalem|
Several friends welcomed us to Israel during our first week here. Judge Stephen Adler, recently retired President of Israel's National Labor Court and facilitator of our internship, along with his wife Ruth had Danny and me over for Shabbat dinner. My first time celebrating the meal was definitely a memorable experience, in the historic Old City of Jerusalem amidst the sounds of songs and prayers rising heavenward. The evening was also a miniature Cornell reunion of sorts as we met one of Judge Adler's classmates and chatted about how the school has transformed over the years, while our stellar hockey team maintains its reputation.
