Today was group 3’s first full day in Israel and it was quite busy. They started by doing a First Temple tour in the Old city, which involved the City of David and Hezekiah’s tunnels, where the kids had the opportunity to walk through water. Then they headed up the hill to see the remains of the Second Temple period with the Southern wall excavations, Robinson’s arch, and the Kotel. They also walked around the Jewish Quarter and saw a beautiful view of the city. They returned to the base to have dinner and get ready for an evening out at Ben Yehuda street. They enjoyed their first full day!
