Taglit/Birthright Day 7: Water hiking, overlooking Syria, and canoeing

Taglit/Birthright Days 5 & 6: Shabbat, the Old City and Givat Haviva

Currently on the bus on the way up to Tiberius on the Sea of Galilee where we will be for the next few days. Thought this would be a chance to catch up on the past couple of days. 1,358 more words

Taglit/Birthright Day 4, Part 1: Memorial Mountain

Today (technically yesterday) has been somewhat heavy, as expected.

First stop was the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial/museum, which I have wanted to visit for a long time. 1,054 more words
