Welcome to my new homepage for the year!!!!  I figured since I am so far away from everyone, what better way for you all to see what I am up to than my very own Year-in-Israel Webpage!!!!!!


The Western Wall in Jerusalem

Friends of mine from Israel
Yaron, Zohar, and Ron - worked with me at GUCI

As hopefully you all know, I am spending the year in Jerusalem as a 1st year rabbinical student at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (or HUC as we all call it!!!!!)  I'm so excited to be living here for the year-- learning, studying, and growing as a person with my fellow classmates.  Here's a link to the HUC homepage, if you're interested!!!!  

Right now, here's as much of the contact info that I have - my new e-mail address that I will have all year:
I also have my real address in case anyone is interested in sending stuff (wink,wink, nudge, nudge):
Elizabeth Wood 
6 Jabotinsky #13
92142  Jerusalem, Israel 
Elizabeth Wood
Hebrew Union College
13 King David Street
94101  Jerusalem, Israel
  (which is a great place to send my mail to, because someone will always be there to receive it!!!!)
I have a cell phone number!!!!!  The actual number itself is 054-6562744. Also, I have this great new thing called Vonage which uses my internet to connect me to this company back in the states.  Therefore, my number is a Chicago area number, but it reaches me here in Jerusalem!!!  I pay a flat rate and have unlimited minutes to recieve AND DIAL calls to the U.S.  My number is (847) 748-2008.  So call me!!!!!


What's new in my world?

BIG NEWS:  I actually now have a chicago area number that reaches me here in Jerusalem.  It's charges you just like if you were to call Chicago!!!!  See Below and to the side for more details!!!!

I am here and living in Jerusalem for the year...but I will be returning at the end of May/early June of 2005!!!!
