The San Francisco Diller Teen Fellows descend on the Nachal Amud trail.
Waking up in a different
country with a completely different time zone being jet lagged is no
easy feat. Doing so and then immediately going on a hike in the Israeli
sun is even more difficult; however, cohort
15 was up for the challenge. We started our journey together in Israel
with a hike at the Nahal Amud in Northern Israel, while the sun was
beating down upon us we kept marching on determined to finish the hike.
After getting on the--thankfully--air conditioned
bus and eating lunch we drove further north to the city of Zefat. We
toured two synagogues and then got free time to wander up and down the
cobblestoned streets of Zefat, taking in the various shops and the
beautiful rolling hills surrounding us. The holy city
behind us, we drove to the burial site of many people who came to Israel
in the second Aliyah. After a full day, we made it back to our hotel for
one last night in Sha'ar Hagolan before departing to Jerusalem.
