Temperatures in Jerusalem still hover almost 40 degrees (Celcius); It still feels like summer; But we are deep into the month of Elul and the daily blast of the Shofar proclaims the arrival of the High Holy days….

……And today, almost 900 boys made their way to the first day of school at Boys Town Jerusalem. They were warmly greeted by their teachers, rabbis and staff. While most of the returning students arrived back to familiar dormitories, classrooms, Synagogues and dining hall, many students, arriving for the first time were accompanied by their parents. Many a loving tear was shed as the young boys embarked upon a new journey, an adventure that will surely impact their lives well into the future.
