WEEKLY UPDATE- 29.12.16

Dear parents, shnattim, bogrim, bogrot, communities and friends shalom rav, We hope you are well! This week we have a different update, as our shnattim are currently on a well- needed Hanukkah break. First candle of Hanukkah was lit last Saturday night, and most of our shnattim left their home base in Ma'alot, and started their journeys across the country. Some found themselves in Haifa, spending time in this gorgeous city, touring around, and being real Israelis, going to a football match Some went to Nazareth for Christmas eve Some came to Jerusalem, and a couple went to the Woman of The Wall Hanukkah candle lighting. As Becky wrote: "Incredibly special evening at the Kotel with the Women

WEEKLY UPDATE- 15.12.16

Dear parents, shnattim, bogrim, bogrot, communities and friends shalom rav, We hope you are well! The winter has officially arrived to Israel. 3 weeks ago we desperately prayed for the rains to come, and last week our prayers were answered! This week, we had a storm- thunders and lightening, crazy amounts of rains, winds, and even hail. On Tuesday I traveled to visit the shnattim in their beautiful villa in Me'ona, and it was so great seeing them all J . The shnattim seem to have settled into their new villa, but it will take some adjustment to getting used to living with 12 other people around you, cooking, shopping, and of course- cleaning. The main highlights the shnattim mentioned are th

WEEKLY UPDATE- 8.12.16

Dear parents, shnattim, bogrim, bogrot, communities and friends shalom rav, We hope you are well! This week, a new chapter on Shnat started, as our Northern shnattim moved from Kibbutz Lotan, in the very south of Israel, to Ma'alot, which is close to the Lebanese boarded in the north of Israel. This change is huge- it is not only the geographic change, or the completely different and fresh landscape- the group now lives in one apartment, cooking ALL the meals for themselves (no more cheder ochel [dining hall]), doing their own shopping, and their main focus is VOLUNTEERING. In addition to all these changes, it is the notion that we are no longer so new in Israel anymore- we experience differ

WEEKLY UPDATE- 1.12.16

Dear parents, shnattim, bogrim, bogrot, communities and friends shalom rav, We hope you are well! This week was the last week of the group on Kibbutz Lotan. I feel comfortable saying this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience- while 18 year olds can certainly go volunteer as a group, or study as either individuals or as an intentional community, living on an ecological, ideological, Progressive Kibbutz in the Israeli desert- this is just unique. Add to that the fact that the group is living in mud domes, creating their own bio-gas, cook with solar-ovens- you get a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The coming Shabbat is going to be a closed one, and is peer-led Shabbat planned by Emma, Becky and As
