refugee update

We had to evacuate the apartment we were in until now because the people who live there came back. Until The end of the month we are located in the Jewish Quarter in the Old City in a place my parents rented. It is a small apartment right in the big square across from the Churva shul (under construction). This has got to be the noisiest place in Jerusalem, the noise generally stops around 3:30 AM and starts again at 5. At the end of the month we are moving into a place in the Baka neighborhood, from which we will hopefully be able to return home.

How's the construction on the shul going? Does it look nice? Last time I was in the old city, before I finished the school year and returned back home, they had the walls covered in tar. What's it look like now?

Elchanan: Young kids can't handle it.

Snoopy, it looks a mess but I'm sure it will more then make up for it when it is done.
