We left Haifa early this morning to head to the ancient Crusader city of Akko where we saw both crusader and Ottoman architecture. We walked through the crusader fortress, crawled through tunnels, and climbed to the top of the city walls. We then had lunch and shopping time in the market before we left the old city.

We then stopped in the new city to talk to an Arab man named Mohamed Fahili about his experience in Akko and how he had opened a Jewish-Arab community center. We all had lots of questions and it was an impactful experience.

Back on the bus to head to Rosh Hanikra, where we took the cable cars down, saw the beautiful Grottos, learned about the geological formation and got to see the boarder of Lebanon. We went back on the bus for our 1 hr ride to Kibbutz Gadot where we will be spending our last Shabbat and mostly the remainder of our trip. The final stop Jerusalem where it all began just for 1 night.
