On our last day at Kibbutz Alumim we had a tour of an older memorial kibbutz nearby, and we heard from a resident of the kibbutz about the lifestyle on the kibbutz. The woman shared with us some of her experiences living in a settlement that is so close to Gaza and was recently affected by the war in Israel 2 years ago. We were also introduced to 3 girls around our age who live on the kibbutz. We had time to ask them their thoughts and feelings about their lifestyle. We then went to Sderot and had a delicious lunch outing. After lunch we boarded the busses and headed back to Mevaseret. We then had time to relax and unpack. After dinner we had an awesome night activity that lead into a super fun paint fight!! (Stay tuned for crazy pictures) Later, there was an optional learning session with Rabbi Felberman that some girls really took advantage of. We’re heading to sleep now and can’t wait for a PACKED day tomorrow of Masada, Ein Gedi, and the Dead Sea!!!
