Israel Journey 3B Update

Dear Family and Friends,

Please enjoy this update from Jason, one of the teens on our trip!

Thursday, July 26

Today kicks off the first full day back in the nation’s capital. We woke up early to a beautiful breakfast in our new hotel, Jerusalem Gold. First on the agenda we hit the Knesset, the nations capital building. We took a tour of the facility and learned all about the complex system of Israeli politics. Next on the list was visiting Jerusalem’s busy Mahane Yehuda Market where we had time to eat authentic Israeli food and shop in the huge market. The market is so big and filled with many interesting stores you do not normally see at home. Lastly we went to take a tour of the Holocaust Museum here in Israel,Yad Vashem. Even though it was a somber few hours for all of us in the group, it was very educational and opened our eyes to parts of the Holocaust we had never known about. Due to the museum being located right here in Israel it had a certain atmosphere inside of it that I do not think you would get at the other memorials around the world.

More updates soon!
