For our final Tiyul Tuesday, we went up north and hiked down Mount Arbel. With everything that’s been happening this week, looking back on that tiyul feels like a breath of fresh air. Both communities were together, which meant the students were able to see their counselors from last semester, and it felt full circle as the program begins to come to an end. After hiking down the beautiful mountain, we went to a beach and swam in the Kinneret.
On Wednesday evening, we participated in a Hebrew coffee activity. We went to a local Israeli coffee house and spent the entire evening speaking Hebrew. We ordered in Hebrew, had conversations in Hebrew, and even laughed about it, all in Hebrew. It was fun to try out what we learned in Ulpan in a real-life environment and gain confidence in speaking Hebrew. After we all enjoyed our café (coffee) and uga (cake), we all left more confident in our ability to speak Hebrew during our day-to-day life in Israel
Elina will be on call on Sunday and on Monday the Madricha on call is Nitzan.
Have a great weekend,
