Bus 48

Elena Caminer - 01/01/2016

The year is coming to an end, celebrating in a kibbutz in the Negev after a riveting and intense discussion about the Arab-Israeli relation. Happy and healthy new year to all. And for us on Bus 48, we can truly say that we will spend next year (2016) in Jerusalem.

After a hearty sleep at our lovely hotel in Jerusalem, we awoke to a quick breakfast and got right in the bus for a busy day.

After learning from Bar (our Israeli tour guide) the history behind Rabin and his assassination, we were broken into groups to walk through the square, ask questions to Israelis about how they felt about the assassination and what it meant for the state of Israel. For me, this was an eye opening activity that was really beneficial to speak to Israelis in Tel Aviv to learn how they actually felt about how the assassination effected their lives and the future of Israel as a whole. Getting first handed accounts of how the people of Israel felt during this difficult time.

Tovah and Shira - 12/27/2015

Today, we got to explore and discuss the beauty and complicated political climate of the Golan in the north of Israel. We left the kibbutz in search of natural beauty which we found during our morning hike, Zavitan.
