Limmud is a Co-ed, experiential, 9-month study and Israel immersion program for the Southern Hemisphere. The program aims to develop 5 circles of “identity” including: Jewish, Zionist, Spiritual, Communal & Personal. Within this framework, participants spend time at Yeshiva/Midrasha, and experience Israel with a wide array of activities and educational modules, as well as a meaningful journey to Poland. Limmud culminates with a 3-month collaborative with our Mechina Olamit, together with Israelis, and participants from the Northern Hemisphere.
Limmud is working hard on the kibbutz, learning Hebrew and are really enjoying themselves!
Last Friday, the group went on a short hike to a water spring called “Ein Moda”. They enjoyes a walk in great weather and getting wet in the “Maayan”. A group decision was made to not bring cellphones on the trip so we can really be together and enjoy a day out in nature.
They did take one camera with them so luckily we have some documentation of the day!
On wednesday, Limmud went to the Chermon and played in the snow! It was a really fun and exciting day. After the chermon they stopped at the Oz 77 Memorial site. There they learned about when the Syrian Army tried to penetrate the Israeli frontline during the Yom Kippur War and was stopped by the Israeli Armored Corps.
Limmud will be spending this shabbat at “Mechinat HaEmek”, an Israeli Mechina near Ein HaNatziv. This will be a special and eye opening experience for the chanichim and a real opportunity to form connections and get to know Israelis their age.
The group has been working hard to prepare Purim and are excited to celebrate our first holiday together in Israel! We will join the Kibbutz community for Megila reading and have our own special Limmud purim seuda and party.
Reminder that next week is a free weekend. It will begin Thursday afternoon until Sunday morning. There will be the option of sleeping on Kibbutz on Thursday night (for anyone who is interested).
Wishing you all a Shabbat shalom and happy purim!
