A Day in the Desert: Masada and the Dead Sea

Jul
12

Hello America! Sadly, we'll be joining you in two short days. Today, we woke up at 3 a.m. and boarded our tour bus in the darkness. Our long-winded ascension of Mt. Masada rewarded us with a breathtaking sunrise that we enjoyed as a new family after we finished the 900 foot climb to the top. After rehydrating with vast amounts of water, we began our tour of the top of the mountain, exploring old fortresses and the first Roman bathhouses. Our wonderful tour guide Omer also taught us how water was transported to the top of the mountain using a system of cistains and aquaducts.

From Tzfat to Tel Aviv

Jul

Same Planet, different world. Or in this case, same 100 kilometers, different world. Every place in Israel is so different - from all the people, to the enviroment souronding it. On this soaring day we took our talents to Tzfat. You may have been wondering Tzaft we were doing. Between waking up early and all the bad puns we walked up some pretty big hills. But seriously we actually walked up a huge hill. When we reached the highest point of any city in Israel, it became clear to us why it is the holy city of the sky.

First Impressions of Jerusalem

Jul
11

Words cannot describe the way a person feels when they step foot into the old city of Jerusalem for the first time. The city is so old that it almost doesn't look real. There are so many different types of people around, orthdox jews, muslims, tourists, etc. The farther you walk the more amazing it gets. There are so many places that have been around since biblical times. We went to what looked like an underpass but was really what used to be the main street during the Roman occupation. There were pillars and cobblestones that were 2000 years old.

Welcome to Israel!

Jul

Sitting in the airport, gazing off and chatting as we wait for the boy who lost his passport, a realization happened. Suddenly, a smile emerged onto our faces: we were here in Israel! After meeting the Israelis and our tour guide, we headed out into the burning heat, buzzing with excitment. Our first day was spent getting to know each other, and getting just a small taste of our Homeland. We headed to Ceasaria where we said the Shehechiyanu, and then we made our way to our Kibutz, Kibutz Chukuk.
