The group spent the morning in Eilat. They then drove to Yerucham to learn about Nativ, USY’s college leadership program in Israel. They met with Yerucham’s mayor, Michael Biton, and heard stories from their American staff who were on the Nativ program there. After lunch they drove to Mitzpe Ramon, were they began a 24-hour outdoor desert experience. They went repelling down the side of a cliff, and encouraged each other to challenge themselves. This evening they went on a short hike, prepared their own dinner, and went stargazing before going to sleep under the stars.
