The other half drove down south to Sderot and Nativ Haasara, visiting the towns and villages surrounding the Gaza Strip, and learning about the difficult situation in the area, as well as hearing firsthand stories from the residents of the area.
In addition to these two unique places, students who chose to, went on a special Hanukiah tour in Jerusalem, led by Rabbi Fivel and Shai T. It was a great opportunity to experience a different city during this holiday of light, walking around Nachlaaot neighborhood and seeing all the Hanukiot lit up.
We are almost one week away from the end of the semester and our emotions are rising. This last week, the students had some amazing activities that began the educational process of summarizing this semester.
Next week, we will be having our final days of classes and internships!
Our Madrich on call this weekend is Shai T.
