Finals begin in three days, and I am not yet ready, but still, I have now found a bit of time to talk about the past few weeks.
Three weeks ago, I traveled north to the Golan with Ilana. She has family friends at Kibbutz Alumote, and they more than happily hosted us for the weekend. We ate a lot, walked a lot, and relaxed. We had a great time simply being out and about exploring new terrain.
Last weekend, we took a group trip to Jerusalem. We didn't do much, which was actually very nice. We went to Shabbat services at Kol HaNshema, walked around (although it was a bit rainy), and did some end of the semester reflection.
This morning I went on a mandatory trip for my history class to the Galilee. We visited sites associated with the 1967 anf 1982 wars. It was a nice trip except for the fact that we left at 6am and that the weather turned against us and we were all very cold.
Tomorrow morning we are holding services just for our group at the university, and Sunday there is a party at the dorms marking the end of the semester. I can't believe that we're nearing the end of December!
Wish me luck on finals, and may you all have a very happy holiday season!
