A Day To Remember

Hi my name is Ayala Terebelo.
This morning GIVE took us to an old age home. It was a really great experience. Some of the people at the old age home didn’t speak English or Hebrew, they only spoke Russian. It was really hard to communicate with them, but we learned that a smile and a laugh is a universal language. Then we went to Yad Vashem where we learned about all the victims of the holocaust. We also learned about many of the righteous gentiles who risked their lives to save jews. At the end of the tour, we walked through doors that led to an incredible view of Jerusalem. This view signified that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. It symbolized that even though Jews have gone through so many tragedies, Israel is always a place that they can turn to.
At night, we had a fun activity where we were divided into teams and played mystery envelope. It truly was one of the most inspiring days yet!
Can’t wait for the rest of the summer!!
love, ayala
