This morning the group woke up super early and climbed to the top of Masada to watch a beautiful sunrise and daven Shacharit at the remains of one of the world’s most ancient synagogues- 2000 years old. They had a tour of the fortress guided by their counselors, then walked down the snake path. Next was one of the most beautiful sites in Israel, the Ein Gedi springs. They hiked through Nachal David and ended at a gorgeous waterfall. The group continued to the lowest spot on earth, the Dead Sea, where they enjoyed floating in the water and putting on the famous Dead Sea mud. Next they stopped at the AHAVA factory for some shopping and returned to Jerusalem to their home base at the Fuchsberg center. They will be staying there until their departure Sunday night. Tonight they enjoyed an I.D.F program prepared by their Israeli staff.
