We are in the Golan Heights for the day, which included a trip to Mount Bental to see the border with Syria and learn about Israeli efforts in the Six-Day War and Yom Kippur War. Our tour guide, Ilan, also spoke about the current conflict in Syria and emphasized that Israel’s commitment to bringing injured Syrian civilians (and often soldiers, as well) to Israeli hospitals speaks to core aspects of what it means to be a Jewish State. Yes, it is demographically Jewish. But more than that, Israel lives up to its mission to build a Jewish sovereign nation according to ancient values.
We just had a chocolate workshop at the De Karina factory, located at Kibbutz Ein Zivan. The owner moved with her family from Argentina over ten years ago and set up the factory according to her family’s recipes. Check out our expert chocolatiers.
