Shalom Parents and Students!
What a busy week we’ve had! On Tuesday our Tel Aviv students traveled to Khirbet Midras where they learned about the history of Bar Kokhba revolt, and also traveled to Beita Israel, a cultural center of the Jewish Ethiopian community in Israel, where the students built houses from mud, just like they do in Ethiopia. Later, they took part in Buna, a traditional coffee ritual, where they cooked the coffee beans and said a blessing on Dabo, an Ethiopean bread. Our Jerusalem students traveled to Gush Etzion, where they met a Palestinian and a Jewish settler, and together, they explored the complexities of coexistence.
