Israel Journey #4B: Shabbat in Israel

Friday, we began our day learning about Machon Ayalon, a secret, historical ammunition factory. Then, we went to Nahalat Binyamin Street, where we had lunch at the market, went shopping and cooled off with smoothies. After, we went to The Banana Beach and soaked in the sun and jumped the waves! We headed back to our kibbutz to get ready for Shabbat!

On Shabbat, we enjoyed sleeping in and hanging by the pool! For our Shabbat activity, we discussed the challenges Israel is facing. Of the many issues, one of them is how the media portrays Israel. The teens found pictures that they took on the trip and made captions with hashtags to display their perspectives of Israel! After Havdallah, we went to a mall and ate our second dinner for the evening! 

Today, we explored excavation sites and took part in an archaeological dig! Next, we learned about the culture of Ethiopian Jews and got to taste their cuisine! After a 4 hour bus ride we have arrived in Eilat! We are all excited about all of the fun activities in store for us this last week!
