|"Bros at Bet She'an" (as James ,one of the other guys, titled it)|
Our next trip was to a 6th century CE Galilean synagogue known as Bet Alpha. I will write more about this later because we will be visiting more Galilean syangogues in the upcoming weeks. It was very interesting!
Our final trip was to a series of three hot-springs (known as "sachna"--at least I believe). We spent two and a half lounging around, swimming from spring to spring. It was relaxing and wonderful. We returned from our trip and headed to dinner, which turned into an interesting experience. We started with salad and soup, and after 30 minutes, we thought that this was all of which dinner would consist. We left the kibbutz dining hall only to have the chef follow us out, yelling that we had only had the beginning of the meal. We returned to french fries, baked fish, and pasta. All of which was delicious. We were also gifted with Shabbat wine, which most people detested. It was extremely sweet, almost like sangria. I would compare it to communion wine. I found it delicious. Now it is pushing 9 p.m., and I better turn in for the night for 4:30 a.m. will come all too soon. Thanks for reading!
