Most of us started the day with a wholesome family style breakfast, while the rest joined us after a run (exercise and/or coffee). We then continued on to Yad B’ Yad, a school that is completely integrated with Jewish and Arab students coexisting in a safe environment. It was there that we met two very progressive strong women. They told us about the difficulties and opportunities that come with the school, which was a very eye opening experience. After a quick transition to a new hotel, we then continued our adventure to Machane Yehuda market. There we had a food scavenger hunt, and dined on our findings. After lunch, we made our way to the old city of Jerusalem. There we explored all four quarters of what made this city so special, and did some shopping in each part. We ended our tour of the Old City by paying our respects to the Western Wall. There we experienced a new virtual reality film about the history of how the Old City came to be. We grabbed some dinner at Burgus Burger Bar,...
We started the day with a rushed Israeli continental breakfast and then continued our journey to south Tel Aviv. We were greeted by an Israeli who would take us on a tour of the graffiti in the neighborhood. After some quick introductions, we learned he grew up in Newton and attended Newton North High School. It really is a small world! After the tour, we drove to the Carmel market, where we had lunch and shopped for a while. We then walked to the Israeli Independence Hall and made a quick stop for milkshakes. We ended the day with an "escape the room" adventure and dinner at Sorona.
