We made it back!

We are in the U.S.!!! It is bittersweet to be home but we are definitely excited to see all of our family and friends! It was an amazing journey, and I guarantee your teen has a million stories and pictures to share. We will see you in Milwaukee in a few hours! Here are a few final pictures from the end of the trip.

Leaving Israel :(

Here is a message from Yaron from 10:40pm Israel time:

Dear Dan, 

I Just wanted to let you know that the group made it through security and check in and they are going through passport control right now. They should be boarding shortly.
It has been an incredible experience and I enjoyed working with all of you during this experience.
Shavua Tov,
Yaron 

 

Here are the arrival details that were emailed yesterday:

Dear Israel Trip Families,

As the teens are wrapping up their final Shabbat in Israel, I wanted to make sure that everyone had the details for the group’s flights home:

The teens are scheduled to depart on United #91 at 11:10pm local time (3:10pm CST) from Tel Aviv (TLV) to Newark (EWR)

  • The group is scheduled to arrive at Newark at 4:20am local time (3:20am CST)
  • The 2nd flight is United 4510, scheduled to leave Newark at 10:38am local time (9:38am CST) and arrive in Milwaukee (MKE) at 11:56am.

Please plan on picking up your teen from Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport when the flight arrives on Sunday at 11:56am.  Mona or Mark will be present to greet the group at the airport.  United flights typically arrive at terminal E in Milwaukee. 

If the arrival time in Milwaukee deviates from the scheduled time by more than 1 hour, we will contact you via email.  For the most up-to-date flight status, please go to www.united.com

As always, we hope to return your teens home better versions of themselves.  We will soon be getting you information on the group can share photos with each other.  Please look for details in a future email.

Shabbat Shalom,

Dan
