Day 3 (written by Bus bloggers – Sasha and Olivia Buraks)
This morning, we took our bus to the mystical city Tzfat and then went to the music program where we played the drums. Then we got to experience the culture of the city as we saw some Bar Mitzvahs at different synagogues, met some of the locals (some 12-year-old boys who didn’t want to leave our group), and toured a candle factory. We also had a conversation about what Judaism means to us (from all the different options, we chose “understanding”). Then we had lunch and walked around the artist colony in Tzfat. Next up was a surprise trip to a winery where tried strawberry, cherry, and chocolate liqueurs – chocolate was our favorite to taste because it was different than anything we’ve ever tasted. We then arrived at our hotel in Jerusalem, had dinner, and went out for an evening out at Machane Yehuda.
