It's the Little Things

Walking through the streets of ירושלים on a weekday evening and seeing pairs of חברותות learning together in the outdoor courtyard of a בית כנסת

EVERYONE, including non-kippah-wearing bus drivers, wishing you a Shabbat Shalom and Chodesh Tov

The palpable silence that starts to descend in the hours leading to שבת

The street names in every city that are constant lessons in Jewish history

The joy people greet you with when hearing that you are an עולה חדשה
