1. Our final Friday night

    This morning, we all got up extremely early to get ready for an archeological dig! It took up most of our morning and we found some awesome things, including coins and the handle of a pot. We wrapped our morning/early noon with a schnitzel sandwich  picnic  lunch.

  2. The views

    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.

  3. Good food day

    This morning, we took a trip to Beit Gefen, an organization in Haifa that explores Arab-Jewish relations in Israel. We talked about their art installments and then went on a food tasting tour. We were so stuffed by the end we barely had room for dessert! (Barely…)

  4. Last day with the Israelis

    We started the day with an early hotel breakfast. First stop was the graffiti tour. We walked around all of Tel Aviv and saw beautiful pieces of art. The kids found meaning in the works and even got an icecream stop.

  5. Last full day in Tel Aviv

    We started the morning off with a nice hotel breakfast and then for our surprise activity. It was an interactive city-wide scavenger hunt that we all couldn’t get enough of! We loved interacting with the undercover actors and eventually finding the “killer” that turned out to be one of our very own Israelis.

  6. A wheelie great day

    We started the morning off with a nice and early breakfast before heading off to our first activity of the day! Which was going to the Yitzhak Rabin center. We learned all about the military history of Israel and It was a meaningful experience for all.

  7. A restful day in Tel Aviv

    We started the morning off with a late optional breakfast! It was the perfect start to our relaxing Tel Aviv Shabbat day.

  8. Shabbat shalom from Tel Aviv

    We started the day off with a four and a half hour bus ride all the way to Tel Aviv!

  9. Our last day in the desert

    We enjoyed a nice breakfast at Kibbutz Keturah and got our bags ready and loaded on the bus. We went on a short drive to Kibbutz Lotan. The kids continued learning about different kibbutzim and how this specific one is very eco friendly and sustainable. They learned all about composting and mud work, they even got to build there own bricks out of bud. After a nice delicious lunch the kids even composted there left over scraps and got back on the bus to head back to Kibbutz Keturah

  10. We had Eilat of fun!

    Today’s long day started out with a short drive to an ice cream store (the best and biggest milk production in all of Israel) to rejuvenate everybody’s energy before a long day of activities. Once we were on the bus we traveled to Eilat. The ride was super scenic with mountains on either side, one side Israel, and the other Jordan.
