Hello! Our group of 40 Penn students arrived safely in Israel on Monday and headed straight for the north. Everyone is happy, health, and a little jetlagged! The group hiked in Mt. Meron this morning and is spending the afternoon in Tsfat, the place where Jewish mysticism gained much recognition in the 16th century.
In addition to all the touring around, we are enjoying amazing weather and many of us have tasted our first schawarma!
