After catching up on much needed sleep, we all woke up with a realization that we are here, we’re in Israel. Staying on the kabutz gave us a glimpse into a community unlike anything else in the world. Watching their Independence Day ceremony last night, I looked around at all the people of the kabutz. I wondered their roles in their community and how they all came to live here. These were people that not only lived near each other, but were all connected to each other on a personal level.
The city of Zefte, a town paved with cobblestone, mystic tales between every crack, looked how I always picture Israel in my mind- a place so emerged in their Judaism. On to the next adventures…
