Our first day of International Convention began with a somewhat long day of travel. All flights arrived safely at either Washington Dulles or BWI throughout the day and after experiencing the local holiday traffic on the ground, we finally arrived at Beth Shalom Congregation to begin our weekend of Pre-Convention together.
Cheerful and enthusiastic members of the USY chapter and others from the Seaboard USY Region welcomed us, and after a quick pizza dinner we kicked off our fun Pre-Convention activities by going Duckpin Bowling, a Baltimore original. Everyone had a really great time and took the opportunity to get to know each other.
At the end of the day we were all pretty tired, so once we returned to the Synagogue we met up with our home hospitality hosts for the weekend and headed home for a good nights sleep. Stay tuned for more updates about Pre-Convention and International Convention (IC) coming soon!
