On Monday, the Israeli Politics Class went on a guided tour of the President’s House. The students enjoyed visiting the gardens and seeing trees that had been planted by different heads of state.
On Tuesday, we went to Masada and the Dead Sea. We saw an amazing sunrise as we approached the top. It was a hard walk up but it was definitely worth it in the end. “We hiked up the snake trail as the sun was rising; it was beautiful! It was so interesting to learn more about the history of Masada, and I enjoyed relaxing by the Dead Sea after all the walking.” shared Talia de Beer.
This Week in (th)INK! we spent the first part of the session continuing to process the current events, both sharing personal feelings and experiences, as well as thinking about the issues in a broader sense.
Then we continued with the topic for the week, an introduction to the holiday of Shavuot, which will begin on Sunday night. We explored some of the hidden and deeper meanings of the holiday which commemorates the revelation at Mount Sinai.
Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach!
Mada – The Ambulance training course finished this week. I would like to congratulate our students who successfully completed the course. We are all very proud of you and look forward to seeing you saving lives!
