Anyway, so why am I wishing Danny a MAZAL TOV??? Danny, an OLEH CHADASH (new Israeli immigrant), just had his swearing in ceremony for the Israeli Army!!! You'll see in the pictures below that the ceremony was last night at the kotel, in the big promenade/plaza area that essentially overlooks the praying holy area. There were no kidding, THOUSANDS of people there! AND IT WAS FREEZING COLD!!!
But we were happy to be there for him, got some cool pictures to send home to his family, and then came back to the warmth of our place to hang out and shoot the breeze till wee hours of the morning. It was fun and with Danny's permission I am posting these pics. Notice his new tag on the shoulder (in the pic where it looks like he is doing a sideways muscle man pose!) . He is very proud, and we are all proud of him!!!
This last pic was really to show the mass amounts of people there,
it was like Mardi Gras at the kotel! Too funny!
