Jerusalem Center students arrived in Jerusalem this morning and started the Jerusalem orientation. It didn't snow today but is expected to snow tonight and tomorrow morning, so for now the students are inside the building until they participate in the first orientation walk, probably on Sunday.

Students on the 2015 Winter Jerusalem Center Program have arrived safely in Tel Aviv. Because of weather conditions in Jerusalem, access roads have been closed. The group will stay overnight at a hotel in Ashdod, a coastal city south of Tel Aviv and will travel to Jerusalem in the morning when roads are expected to reopen. All is well.
