Sunday – Feb. 12 in Jaffa by Rosalie Whitehill


We began the week with community service. Who can believe that this is our last week in Tel Aviv. Time has just flown by. After lunch, we toured Old Jaffa…..and we went to the area where the port is being renewed with fancy shops and restaurants (very little open as yet) and it was reminiscent of South Street Seaport…..and noticed some beautiful apartment buildings overlooking the port area (millions of dollars to purchase one). We also passed a new complex that housed a theater with productions performed by blind or deaf people, cafe where waiters are deaf, and a restaurant that is completely dark……seems to me that’s a great way to develop greater sensitivity to people with those handicaps. Dinner was at a marvelous Mediterranean style restaurant….with hot, home-made pitas, felafel, eggplant salads,delicious humus, and lots of other delicious salads, then kebabs…and baklava type deserts…what could be better.
And..tomorrow another special day!
