When our counselors told us that we will be waking up at 4 am my first thought was eek! How will we do this? Well needless to say, we did definitely do it! At 4 am we met in the lobby of the youth hostile for some coffee and cake and onto to the bus we went to take a short drive to the Masada mountain. That 20 minute bus ride was probably the quietest we have been all week long. Before starting the hike we gathered in a circle arm in arm singing the chant that we learned on the first day "achim, achim, achim, achim, achim, simcha, simcha, simcha, simcha, simcha".
