Tel Aviv Weekly Email
With quarantine behind us, we had an exciting week here in our Rothschild Community.
Sunday was our first official day as a community out of quarantine. We started the day by going on a bike trip along the shore; the students biked south and enjoyed the warm summer sun. Those who didn’t want to bike took a long walk along the Tel Aviv shoreline. Everyone ended up at Bloomfield stadium, where the students who weren’t vaccinated yet got their first doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

Sophia Yunaev wrote about her experience:
“Our trip to Haifa yesterday was not only beautiful, but also a very eye-opening experience. I enjoyed learning about the origins of Haifa, including the establishment of the German colony and the building of the ports on the coast. Something that really stuck with me during the tour was seeing the amount of diversity and variety of people within the small city. The night before, at our Faces of Israel class, we had learned just how diverse Israel really is. It was interesting to see how from the day Haifa was built until now, the city remains a community of peaceful coexistence. I think that’s what makes Haifa so special to tourists and locals.”
Have a great weekend,
