Today we had a very meaningful day on GIVE. We started off the morning with an introduction to the new NCSY Pray for a Soldier movement. 2 soldiers came to speak to us and they told us their stories. Each girl then received the name of a soldier to pray for personally. We then heard a very insightful speech by Neil Lazarus about educating oneself on the Middle East conflict and understanding a Jews’ obligations in the political world. After that we boarded the busses and spent some time in Israel’s famous Holocaust museum, Yad Vashem. After we got back everyone got to rest a bit and then we headed to the Kotel for Mincha and Chaburot. We finally broke our fast in a cool restaurant called “Modern” and had a fun time celebrating the birthdays of two of our special GIVErs!!! Tomorrow we head off to Kibbutz Alumim for 3 days! Can’t wait!
