Our First Day!

Stephanie was the lucky winner of getting the tablet to take pictures on today!

We started off the day with a shehechiyahu ceremony where we all shared wine and said the blessing over new things and in our case our new experience. Then we continued to a three hour hike called the Jilabun. We ended up at the Devorah waterfall where we got to enjoy a refreshing swim. Then we then traveled to Mt. Bental where our amazing tour guide, Lilach, informed us of the history of Israel and its borders. Witnessing smoke and the sounds of bombs from the top of the mountain, we learned about the current situation in Syria. To finish off the day with adventure, we enjoyed rafting in the Jordan River! Lucky for us, everyone survived the intense rapids ;)

What an awesome start to our trip!
Stephanie, Gertie, Aaron and Shani
