Sunday, January 24 – Peres Peace Center and Jaffa

The weather has turned – yes – we have had rainy days – mostly nights. When it rains here – it really rains. But, that hasn’t stopped us – we buddle a little more, put on raincoats and ponchos, extra layers and maybe an umbrella, if it isn’t too windy! Just like the postman – CAARI goes on!
Today after Community Service, we visited the newly dedicated Peres Peace Center and learned about the terrific work they are doing. We were most impressed – not only with the building, its location, but the committment to peace activities. Next stop, a place called Nalag’at Center. This unique center includes a theatre of deaf-blind acting ensemble, a ‘blackout’restaurant where guests are served in total darkness and a cafe tended by deaf or hearing impaired staff. This center gives opportunities to those who are challenged. Some of us tried to get tickets for the performance – but they are sold out!
Last stop of the day – dinner at Maganda Restaurant – a Yemenite Restaurant in ‘little’ Tel Aviv.
A little wine, tasty food and great company!
