Yesterday we were able to visit Tzfat and see the mystical city that was once the center of Jewish life. This town now full of artists and Kabbalist. We learned about the practices of Kabbal and how it has evolved over different generations. Next we went to Tel Aviv which is the first Jewish city. We saw where Hebrew was developed and where the original schools stood. Another large site in Tel Aviv thatr we were able to see was the Independence hall where we heard the recording of Ben Guron declaring the the Jewish state of Israel. The night ended in a bar on the beach where we got to put our feet in the Mediterranean Sea, enjoy some beers and talk to our new American and Israeli friends.
