Volunteering, Paint Balling, and Bowling In Jerusalem

iceisrael August 12, 2014

Today we did a bunch of mitzvahs! The day began with helping the needy in Yerushalayim, which is a big mitzvah and gave us a good feeling that we were able to help out some of our Jewish brothers and sisters who unfortunately find themselves in need at this time.

We then had lunch and headed into the Gush for paint ball. The course that we were able to play on was not just any paint ball entertainment facility – it’s an actual fully functional anti terrorism training facility, and our paint ball leaders were some of the same people who train army, police, and security forces in counter terrorism fighting techniques!

We then headed back into Yerushalayim for some fun bowling, because, honestly – who doesn’t love a good bowling night, eh?

Now, here’s the kicker – volunteering was obviously a mitzvah. But, paint ball and bowling, in a sense were mitzvahs, too! Why? Because, living our everyday lives in Eretz Yisrael is a mitzvah, so doing fun things like paint ball and bowling in Eretz Yisrael are mitzvahs, too! Just some food for thought 🙂 See you tomorrow!
