January 19 – Diaspora Museum and Holon Musuem & week’s speakers

Narrative to follow

    Wednesday, January 20 began our second rainy cold day of volunteer work and after lunch the weather cleared and we went to the Holon Chidrens Museum for Dialogue in the Dark where people can experience what blind and visual inparied people do. 
    The museum is in total darkness and with the help of a blind or visually impaired guide you have to negotiate your way through many day to day places that are modeled in the museum including buying food in a cafeteria. As in the CAARI tradition two people had memorial / remembrance of departed (Yahrzeit) and we prayed Mincha together which is the afternoon service on the lawn before entering the museum.
    We returned to the hotel for our evening speaker Uri Yaffe from the Tel Aviv-Jaffa Municipality
