Over the Pesach break I had the chance to travel with family to Eilat for a few days. It was good times, enjoying the hot weather, relaxing on the beach and working on the tan. When in Eilat I recommend visiting the under water observatory which houses some of the most exotic and beautiful sea life.

To start off the Passover break the students of Rothberg got the amazing opportunity to hike through the Galilee for 4 days. We began our journey in the westernmost part, the Mediterranean sea and headed eastward. After a full day of hiking we spent the night at a hostel, high up in mount Miron. In the morning we continued eastward arriving to the city of Tzfat right for Shabbat. We toured the old city during the day. Tzfat is an amazing city known for being the place where Kabbalah mysticism flourished and developed during mid evil times. READ MORE... about Yam le Yam (Sea to Sea 4 day hike)
