Day 15: Safed and Travels Home
Today was our last day in Israel! We started by going to the city of Safed. There we learned about the origins of Kabbalah, a part of Judaism that focuses on the metaphorical. We saw old and new houses, and a beautiful beeswax shop. Then we explored a street in the city that was filled with art and artisanal jewelry stores. Then we headed to the Sachne, a freshwater spring, which we swam in. Now we are getting tested to go on the airplane back. See you soon! From, Reuben and Matias
Day 14: Rafting, Chocolate Making, and a Party!
Today we woke up early and made our way to a biking program and took an hour-long ride with a view of Mount Hermon, before taking the bus towards a river rafting program, where we got to raft down a river that intersected with the Jordan river, and ended with a small waterfall. After that, we made our way to the Galita chocolate factory where we got to make our own chocolate bars! We ended the day with a party on a rental boat on the Kinneret, with lots of screaming and dancing. From, Clea and Alina
