ILSI – Shopping, Surfing, Sightseeing Galore!

We are having the best time! Today, we started the day with a Bina walking tour and Limmud session. Then we went to the Peres Center for Peace and Innovation in Jaffa where we learned how Israel became the ‘Startup Nation.’ 

This was followed by a delicious lunch at Dr. Shakshuka restaurant in Jaffa and shopping in Ha Carmel Market. The teens got to see the hustle and bustle of the Carmel market and a lot of them tried Malawe, which is a dessert that you can find in the market. They also checked out the artist market, Nachalat Binyamin, which is only open on Tuesdays and Fridays. 

Next, one of our busses got to do a graffiti tour of the Florentine neighborhood while the other group had beach/surfing time at Tel Aviv beach. We will switch tomorrow so everyone will get to experience both!

Tonight, we are staying at a kibbutz overlooking the Mediterranean and are looking forward to another spectacular day tomorrow!
