Aiden: Yad Vashem is the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, and it’s a place that is interesting and sad at the same time. It was designed to recreate everything as symbols that represent aspects of the Holocaust. For example, most of the museum is one underground hallway shaped like a triangle to make you feel trapped. There are windows on the top so that when you leave the museum, you look down into it as you walk overhead. To me, this represents looking back on the events of the past.
Michael: Shuk Mahane Yehudah was completely packed on Friday. There was both diversity and unity. I heard many different languages, but everyone was doing the same thing—shopping to get ready for Shabbat. We got a voucher card that allowed us to purchase food at different restaurants there.
