Gap year in israel - aardvarkisrael

Shalom Parents and Students!

Last week was another exciting week in our program, where our students celebrated both Sukkot, and a few more exciting moments, as part of their time here in Israel; our students Deji, Lily, Hannah, Alexa, Galia and Elias from Levontin community took advantage of the holiday break to explore Israel by foot and organized their own trip to the Kinneret. But that’s not all! Scroll down to read about their latest adventures >>

After building their Sukkot, our students visited Rabbi Nahum’s Sukkah and had the official ritual with all four species – Etrog, Arava, Hadas and Lulav. Another custom we have here in Aardvark Israel is celebrating students’ birthdays – this week was Hannah and Eitan’s birthday! Mazal Tov 🥳

After the holiday, our Tel Aviv communities traveled to Jerusalem and toured the Old City. They visited Armon Ha’Natziv Observatory, Jaffa Gate, the Western Wall, and had some free time to explore the colors and flavors of the famous Machane Yehuda Market.

Well, our Jerusalem students definitely don’t need a city tour! They are already locals 😉 On Tuesday Tiyul, they hiked the Siloam tunnel (Nikbat Hashiloach), where they walked through its water tunnels, which was carved within the City of David in ancient times.

That’s all for now! Today and tomorrow we will celebrate Simchat Torah, concluding this year’s Chagim season. For now, we leave you with a picture of our Sea Sports group, on their weekly activity, and this time – it’s sap class!

Have a great holiday,
