On Friday the participants had a short but enjoyable hike, followed by a trip to Sde Boker and a visit to Ben Gurion’s tomb. They learned about Ben Gurion and how he shaped the country. They prepared for their first Shabbat in Israel, which was at Kibbutz Sde Boker. On Saturday the participants got to try jachnun for the first time, which is a delicious fried dough very popular in Israel. They did t’fila, Kiddush, and got an introduction into Young Judaea, including the history and ideology of the movement, and they learned about Shabbat “YJ” style. Later they learned more about the different va’adot they could be on and split themselves into the groups they wanted to be a part of.
