Saturday was a chill day as it was Shabbat; we stayed in the hotel, hung out, and ended the day with havdalah. We woke up bright and early on Sunday morning to see the sunrise on Masada. We left the hotel at 3:00 in the morning and we were climbing by 4:45. The group climbed at different paces but we all made it to the top of the mountain before the sun started rising. It was an incredible view, and an incredible sight to see the sun rise on the top of Masada. Once the sun had risen, we went around the top of Masada to tour the ruins and learn about the history behind it. After that, we went to the Dead Sea and had lots of fun floating there, and also swimming in a nearby pool. To end the day we went to the Bedouin tents where we were staying the night. We met a Bedouin woman, ate dinner and ended the night chilling out in the Bedouin village. – Asher H.
