May Excursion – AACI’s J-Town Playhouse

With all the traveling we did in April with my parents, we decided to stay close to home for our May exploration. Our special event for this month was just up the street from us; across from the mall where I do a lot of my shopping and in the same location as the ulpan that Adam went to. This month we decided to get cultured and go to a play at the Association of Americans and Canadians in Israel (AACI).

The play was directed by a friend of ours who we met here and was titled, It’s not you…,Well Maybe It Is! The play was about religious dating in Jerusalem and was based on true stories told by singles who have experienced the pressures to get married. It was really well done and very entertaining! The actors did an amazing job!

The trials and tribulations presented in the play were very entertaining and eye opening to someone like me who dated very little before getting engaged. Adam and I also got engaged very young so we missed out on a lot of the pressures that were presented in the play. Our friends who we saw at the play, in addition to those that we specifically went with, really could identify with the stories told and often had their own stories to share about how people tried to set them up or the weird dating experiences they had. It made me appreciate more and more how lucky I was to have met Adam so early on in my life. While it is always nice to have stories to tell, it is even nicer to have avoided the stress and anxiety that comes with years of dating.

We had a really great time at the play; it was a really nice Wednesday date night. We got a chance to relax and laugh as well as support our friend, the director, who was kind enough to sign my program. It was a nice evening that demonstrates the hidden treasures of Jerusalem that we aren’t always aware of…

Until next time…
