... by the Kotel we gave the bochurim the option to either go on a city wall tour or to Pantry Packers (Pantry Packers is a newly opened מוסד under Colel Chabad and ran by Rabbi Menachem Traxler, it is located in a warehouse 10 minutes away from the Kotel, it is where volunteer's can give an hour of their time to help pack food for poor families in Eretz Yisroel), after the trips ended we had a beautiful pizza מלוה מלכה, and then off to bed.
... we went to the Bar Kochba Caves followed by קבר רחל and after that we finally made our way into Yerushalaim where we stayed at the Diaspora Yehsiva (located right by קבר דוד) which is a 10 minute walk from the Kotel, there we unpacked ate lunch and got ready for shabbos and then we got a walking tour of the old city of yerushalaim followed by קבלת שבת by the Kotel.
