Today we sent our Israel travelers on their way! Our late session of grades 3-5 heard about the trip from them, found out what year they would be going in 10th grade, and blessed them before they got on the bus to go to the airport. Here are some thoughts from our 5th graders…
Are you excited to go on this trip when you are in 10th grade?
Of course I am excited to go to Israel, why would I not be?
What are you most looking forward to when you go on the trip?
I really want to see the Western Wall in person and not just in pictures like Rabbi Stern said.
I want to float on the Dead Sea.
I so want to do a donkey ride!
I’m excited about the adventure and new surroundings and seeing the sites.
I want to see how Israeli people live their everyday lives.
What do you want to ask the 10th graders when they get back?
Did you get used to the time difference? Were you tired?
Did you like the food? What kind of food did you eat?
Did you visit any good tourist sites?
What were you most excited to see before the trip? What was the best part?
Was there anything that concerned you?
Was it a lot different than the U.S.?
Do you think you will go back?
We wish our group a nesiya tova – a safe, exciting, and meaningful journey and can’t wait to hear all about it in their blog posts and when they return.
