About The Trip

Kever Rachel, Me’arat Hamachpela, Ziplining and Ropes Course in Gush Etzion

iceisrael August 7, 2016

Coming to Israel, it is always important to be educated about the Patriarchs and Matriarchs of the Jewish people.

We started off our day today by making a trip to Kever Rachel on an armoured bus. When we arrived, we first learned a little bit about Rachel’s life. Afterwards, we were given time to daven inside the Kever.

We then made our way to Maarat Hamachpela. There, we broke in to various small sessions where we learned about Avraham and Sarah, Yaakov and Leah, and Esav. Each session focused on teaching about the life of one person buried at Maarat Hamachpela.

After being in Chevron, we made our way to Efrat to have a delicious lunch followed by rock climbing and zip lining in Gush Etzion.

Once we were all worn out from the day’s activities, we headed back to the hotel for dinner and Chaburah sessions. Thereafter, we had an amazing privilege to hear from Rabbi Mendelovich¬†and about his journey from Russia to Israel. Lastly, we finally got our finished tie-dye shirts from last week to finish off the day.
