We made sure we used the day of rest to its fullest. With a later start and recreational activities throughout the day, we got to know one another much better and catch up on rest for our big week. After closing Shabbat, we had the opportunity to explore and eat dinner in the city of Tiberias. We got back and knowing that they next morning started early, most of us relaxed on the kibbutz and headed to bed at a decent hour.
The flights took off and they landed. 14 hours of travel quickly forgotten the minute everyone was greeted by our Shorashim leaders, Doug and Jessica. Shortly there after (a 3 hour bus ride) we arrived at the Kibbutz in Golan Heights. The warmth of the Kibbutz could only be matched by the accompanying name game we played after dinner in the dining center where we all told stories about our shoes. The next morning (today) we ate a delicious, kosher breakfast. We began our first tour which turned wet and wild faster than the raindrops could hit the floor.
