I’m heeere!

I’m here in Israel!

I can’t write much, since I’m on the HUC library’s computers, and they don’t like us using them for non-research tidbits for very long, but I just wanted to update anyone who bothers reading this that I got to Israel safely.

I landed at 5 pm Israel time last night, met up with Chuck, and we got to Jerusalem in a cab just fine. (A little bit of arguing with the cab driver, but that’s to be expected.) One of my bags disappeared, but I should be getting it back within an hour or two. (Funny story.. I’ll tell it later, though.)

I found my apartment, started getting settled in, did some basic stuff at HUC this morning, and now I’m going to… I don’t know what yet, but I’ll find something to do. Maybe I’ll go to Tel Aviv for the evening to see Chuck.

In case you haven’t heard yet, I couldn’t bring my cat with me — one little thing on my paperwork was wrong, and I couldn’t get in touch with the head Israeli Veterinarian to get an exception in time. (Turns out he granted the exception… but not until I was already on the plane. Bastard.) So I’m hoping my parents will get the blood test re-done and send her here to me — my roommate went out of her way to pick up cat supplies for me, so I’m hoping I get to use them instead of them just sitting there with no cat. But I’ll keep you updated about that.

More details to come when I have a real internet connection!

B’shalom,

~ Rae
