Israel Journey 5C: Update #2

Dear Friends and Family,

Shavua tov from the Arava Desert!

We brought in Shabbat at the Kibbutz Yahel with a teen-led Shabbat service and delicious oneg where the teens led a fun and engaging social program. Saturday was spent relaxing and recharging at the kibbutz. After sleeping in, we had pool time and the teens led a Saturday community building activity where each of us shared an unexpected highlight of the journey so far. We are all so happy to have more time to explore this amazing country. We then transitioned into Havdalah where we reflected on our time in Israel. The group spent a fun night out in Eilat where we went to a shopping mall and walked on a boardwalk with fun games and rides.

We woke up early and drove back to Eilat where we had a fun day adventuring in the Red Sea. Banana boats, kayaks, paddle boats – oh my! We had the chance to go snorkeling as a group before heading to the Ice Mall for a yummy lunch and shopping. Before heading to the kibbutz for the evening we stopped at Yotvata for ice cream – the best ice cream in Israel!!

We have loved being in the most southern part of Israel and tomorrow we head out to Mitzpe Ramon for a day of learning about Israeli culture.

More to come… !
Chelsea and Bradley
