The week began with us returning from our kvutza seminar near sde boker. We arrived back at the etgar flat and immediately started settling in and unpacking all of our things from our seminar away, we were also greeted to lots of groceries that had been bought by our lovely tsevet.
Friday was a day for us to relax and explore with some people walking up to the shuk and exploring everything on offer in the pre-Shabbat chaos. Others went to a local shul; kol haneshama. People then regrouped for a lovely Shabbat meal made by our guest from England Jess baker.
Saturday helped us relax, most people slept in, but a group of people walked to a nearby cinema to see black panther
Sunday began our first full day of etgar with the morning beginning with chocolate run by your lovely week leader jess followed by the start to Hebrew lessons, which helped us enrich our Hebrew vocabulary. The rest of the day we spent having asephot and deciding how we want our etgar to run. The day ended with a kahoot quiz for the group and a screening of one of our favorite movies, the bee movie.
