Over the weekend, we had our closing seminar in the north in a city called Achziv. We started on Friday with hike in Mount Carmel followed by a visit to Rosh Hanikra. Rosh Hanikra was a last minute addition to our itinerary, and I was so happy we got to see it! It is located at Israel's northwestern tip, at the only point where the sea meets the cliffs. You take the steepest cable car in the WORLD (that is not a lie) and get to experience beautiful sea grottoes. The view from the cable car is breathtaking!
Afterwards, we arrived at our hotel in Achziv, which was located right across the street from the beach! We had Kabbalat Shabbat together and then dinner. On Saturday we had a very relaxed first part of our day, with the option to go to the beach and then lunch. Afterwards we did some group activities before meeting again for dinner. This was one of my favorite seminars, and it was really special to spend the time in a beautiful setting with all my friends that I have made so far on this program.
On Sunday we had our closing gala in Jerusalem at a beautiful museum venue. It started with a cocktail party, followed by closing remarks and an improv show. Afterwards we had a buffet style dinner, with different stations (the food was delicious!). The night ended with a dance party :)
Below are some pictures from both the seminar and the gala. This week and next I will be packing up my apartment, spending time with my students and taking care of all the last minute details before my departure :(
