Shalom! We're having the best time in Eilat even though its super hot. We went on a really cool hike in the desert called the Red Canyon. We also took a tour of the Kibbutz where we are staying and had time to relax and go swimming. Last night was the disco boat party which was awesome. We will post pictures soon of everyone's costumes. Tonight we're camping out at the base of Har Shlomo and waking up really early to climb to the top for sunrise. We will post pictures and write more when we get to Jerusalem tomorrow.
Shalom Shorashim mothers and fathers! These past days have been incredible. At the end of last week we had the opportunity to climb Masada. With an early morning wake up at 3:30 we were all exhausted, but after pushing and pulling each other up we experienced an unforgettable sunrise. Once at the top we learned about the different civilizations who lived there and how they were eventually destroyed. Next, we set off to Be'er Sheva where we walked around the developing city with photographers and were given tips on how to capture the moment in a photograph.
