After a wonderful Shabbat together, Group 8 spent the day around the Kinneret. They hiked down the Arbel, a fortress from the Second Temple Period and then cooled off from the hot day with a swim in the Kinneret! They stopped by the Kinneret cemetery where the famous poet Rachel is buried and visited the grave if Naomi Shemer, famous for her song “Jerusalem of Gold.” In the afternoon, the group rode donkeys and all had a turn to lead the donkey and to ride one as well. They dressed up just like ancient donkey riders and learned about the history of Kfar Kedem. Later, they boarded the bus for the ride back to Kibbutz Hannaton.
