Sarah, Sheina Ettel, and Miri.

Within the first 5 minutes of meeting Sarah, we were out eating falafel, snapping pictures, and talking about journeys.

I was still trying to get Sheina Ettel's name straight while she was in my room listening to a Manis Freidman tape while cutting my hair.

I knew all about Miri's ex-boyfriends and her thoughts on G-d - dare I first know where she's from.

I guess certain things just don't matter when all you want is closeness, connection, harmony.

I can't say enough about the beautiful speed in which connections are built with your fellow Jew here in Tzfas, at Machon Alte - in the air of Chassidus.

There's so much to learn, so much beauty to reveal in people.

You gotta run to the center with a smile.

Its never happened to me like this. I've never experienced such avoidance of barriers, such running to the core of another person - knocking down every thing else "in the way."

Just one more thing to "blame Chassidus" for...or at least that's how I see it.

I think part of your strength is in your golden-colored hair; so I hope you didn't take off too much of it....

Keep writing, we love every bit of it.

Love 4 ever.
