Summer has officially began here in Israel, and we have been pretty busy. Earlier this month, our students attended the annual Masa conference, designed to help them think about their next steps after the program. This included workshops, panels and motivational speakers. The seminar was predominantly focused on life on University campus and back in the diaspora.
Among the daily activities of internships and volunteering, our students experienced some meaningful moments exploring the complex reality of living in Israel. Check out all the photos from our last trip to the Sderot, Asaf Siboni observatory and Path to Peace >>
Faces of IsraelFollowing the trip to the Gaza envelope, we hosted Etai, who shared his story about growing up in the Gaza strip until the Disangagement in 2005. This activity was part of ‘Faces of Israel’, where we bring different speakers on a weekly basis, to talk to the students about the most interesting, thought-provoking issues in the Israeli society.
We started June with a three-day trip to Eilat, the most Southern city in Israel. Students also participated in Extreme sport activites and Yam-El-Yam (Sea-to-Sea trail), a three-day hike in the Galilee, in the North of Israel, one of the most popular trails in Israel.
