Today the group volunteered at Leket Yisrael (an organization that donates food to families and food banks around Israel) where they harvested potatoes to be donated. Next on the schedule was the Latrun tank museum where they enjoyed learning about and climbing on some of the tanks used in the past by the IDF. The group also visited the memorial for the fallen soldiers of the armored corps unit. On the way back to Jerusalem the group stopped at the Harel mall in Mevaseret Tzion, famous for its kosher McDonalds. Upon returning to base they had a presentation with Yossi Garr – the Director of Nativ, USY’s college leadership program in Israel. After dinner they played drama games, which gave them a chance to reflect on their journey this summer in a fun and active way.
