Mid-June Update

Well a lot has happened since the last update.

Instead of doing the Couples program at Darche Noam we decided that it would be better - for a number of reasons - that I instead went straight into the pre-Rabbinic track at Yeshivat Hamivtar. We didn't feel that Darche Noam was the best place for us philosophically and it would help me out for my Rabbinical school. It also finalized our issues revolving around housing and health insurance. Naomi is still going to Midreshet Rachel and will be commuting between Efrat and Jerusalem (J'lem) every day.

So, we're moving to Efrat instead of Jerusalem. And we have an apartment. Well it's more of a caravan on the side of a hill, but it's a free caravan on the side of a hill. The Yeshiva is busy building buildings on site so we may move into a real apartment soon - we'll see.

Efrat can be seen via Satelite here, and if you look just to the south you can see "Yeshivat Hamivtar". That's where we'll be for the next four years. It's a beautiful city with a fantastic community and an even better view of the Judean Hills.
