Today we closed our powerful week in the desert with a visit to David Ben-Gurion’s grave in Sde Boker. We had group discussions, did text study, and delved into Ben-Gurion’s ideas for blossoming the desert. As our last activity in the South we enjoyed some pizza in Sde Boker, and then we were off! We are now driving up to our first base in the North – Ohalo on the Kinneret, where we will continue our participant-led activities and spend the night. Tomorrow we have an early start and will spend the day exploring Israel’s first kibbutzim and learning about the חלוצים (pioneers).
