Today the group had a delicious breakfast and went to a beautiful lookout. Following this, we went to Meshek Hai, which is a goat farm. It was such a fun experience! Check out some of the highlights of the day below:
We boarded the bus and headed to our first stop at Tzfat. Ori shared the fascinating history of the four holy cities. We toured a synagogue, visited a art gallery and had time to shop at some boutique shops in the narrow alley ways. We ended our tour with falafel from a local hotspot.
What an amazing few days we have had. We spent Shabbat in the holy city of Jerusalem. Before bringing in Shabbat, we toured the old city and visited the Kotel (Western Wall). It was a moving experience and we all had a chance to connect to our spirituality and our heritage.
After a short drive we floated in the Dead Sea which was surprisingly cold, but who could resist. We found out how quickly the sea is evaporating, it might not exist in 20 years.
Get ready for an amazing adventure! #Birthright #Shorashim
