It’s officially week two in Israel! We had a fabulous time in Jerusalem over the past few days celebrating Shabbat and Shavuot and learning more about each other and our connections to Judaism and Israel.
Today we visited Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum, as well as Mt. Herzl, the military cemetery, before heading south to our hotel in Ein Bokek. Tomorrow is an early morning hike up Masada to see the sunrise and then some well-deserved relaxation time at the Dead Sea before arriving at the Bedouin camp for our Taglit Village workshops and, of course, camel riding! It’s been a great trip so far and we all look forward to spending our last few days in Israel together!
