I feel very emotional writing this last email of the Fall semester. This was a very significant semester for us, which makes it that much more difficult to say goodbye, but at the same time we are taking a deep breath and look forward to the next semester. The students are preparing to move to Tel Aviv and they couldn’t be more excited!
This week in Jerusalem we started to really feel the end of the semester. Each group participated in a concluding activity with their Madrich or Madricha, students started to clean up the apartments, final classes and exams were held, and some goodbye dinners were eaten.
This week on the Tiyul we went to the salad trail! On the salad trail, the tour guide explained to us how different fruits and vegetables are grown, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, oranges, lemons, strawberries, and carrots! After she explained to us how each of the different fruits and vegetables were grown, we got to walk around the farm and pick some of the fruits and vegetables and eat them! They were super yummy and delicious! I had so much fun eating my way through this Tiyul!
Thank you for a great semester!
Our counselor on call this weekend is Elina.
