Three intrepid JCOGS teens, Ella, Fiona, and Manny, joined the Jew Crew of Kol haEmek (Upper Valley Jewish Community) and teens from Shir Shalom (Woodstock) for an amazing, whirlwind visit to NYC. We traveled by Dartmouth Coach arriving just in time to visit Ted Comet at his Upper West Side apartment where he  gave us an emotional tour of tapestries created by his wife, Shoshanah, a Holocaust survivor.  

Then, we went to services at Temple Israel of the Upper East Side and met with teens there. On Shabbat we took a delicious food tour of the Lower East Side eating bialys, donuts, pickles, knishes AND old time candies all before noon!.  Next we made our way to the southernmost tip of Manhattan to take the ferry to Ellis Island, where we spent the afternoon learning about how difficult our ancestors' arrival in this country must have been.

That evening we had dinner at a kosher Chinese restaurant and then saw Kimberly Akimbo, an emotional Broadway show. 

Sunday morning we left the hostel on the Upper West Side and wrapped up the weekend with a visit to the famous Zabar's food emporium. We delighted in the new Moynihan Hall at Penn Station as we raced to catch the Amtrak train back to NH/VT.
