My name is Julia Mattis and I am the staff member traveling with group 1710. We landed safely in Israel this morning around 6:30 am local time. After going through Covid protocols, we made our way to the hotel and enjoyed an afternoon of relaxation and pool time. We will eat dinner at the hotel tonight and get some rest in preparation for our day tomorrow full of meeting new people and exploring Tzvat.
Here is a photo of the view from our hotel.

The group was learning about Tzfat from our tour guide Shimon.
