Our first day started with an exciting water hike in Majrase. The beautiful greenery around our refreshing hike was only one wonder of the Galil we experienced today. After our hike we made our way to a park in The Katzrin village in the Golan Heights. We had a delicious lunch consisting of schwarma, pita, and Israeli salad! We then made our way into the ancient village where advisors put on skits to teach lessons that Talmudic personalities had said themselves, while we were sitting in some of their original houses. We walked through ruins of an ancient shul where a scribe met us and displayed to the girls his incredible calligraphy. After learning about our ancient history we stopped at a local grocery store to pick up some snacks! Ending the day with our first chaburah, the buzz around the GIVE girls were that they can’t wait for more to come! We had an Israeli stye dinner with an icebreaker and a fun “bedazzle your Fanny” (our fanny packs of course) night activity. Thursday nights Rabbi Felberman, the honoray GIVE rabbi, will be kicking off our first mishmar of GIVE 2014! Looking forward to a wonderful Shabbos up in the north!
