Today, we went to Ammunition Hill/Givat Hatachmoshet and met reservists who told us about their position in the IDF. Steve Garr, a first responder in the anti terrorist unit told us an inspiring story about the daily lifestyle of this type of soldier. After that, we watched a short film about the recapturing of Jerusalem during the Six Day War.
Following this, we went to Machane Yehudah Market and experienced a typical Friday atmosphere. We walked through the shuk buying candy and eating falafel. It was an incredible and unforgettable experience! Then we were taken back to the hotel to get ready for Shabbat. We can't wait for Shabbat and the week to come! Shabbat Shalom! ~Lydia Cohen, Class of 2018
