keeping it fresh at the Kinneret

Our first Israel seminar tiyul (overnight field trip) was to the Gallilee. We learned about the origins of the pioneering and kibbutz movements in Israel and visited a Kibbutz farm, Tel Hai stayed on a Kibbutz hotel on the kinneret. The next day we had the opportunity to meet with Moki Tsur, a leader of the kibbutz movement and then meet with social activists in a community in the north. We rounded out our visit by visiting the Lebanon border in the north and then having a barbecue on the kinneret on our way back to Jerusalem. The trip was a great opportunity to learn about the foundations of Israel, as well as the challenges its citizens face in daily life. Here are some of my favorite pictures:
