Good afternoon –
The Pioneers are getting ready to head to the airport after a fun packed 2 days.
They did a ropes course yesterday and ended the day/night with a gourmet dinner prepared by Shlomo. Kibbe, sambusak, and a gourmet meal, all hand made. Then the festivities began. The kids and counselors had skits prepared poking fun at each other and laughing at many of the memories of the summer. They put together a slideshow as well as an awards ceremony. All of this was led and run by the Pioneers.
Today they had a gorgeous Tefilah on top of a mountain, overlooking all of the desert hills and the campsite in which they stayed.
Finally, to bring it full circle, the Pioneers built a ‘rujum’ (tower of rocks) where each pioneer shared something they had learned about themselves this summer. On their arrival, the Pioneers opened the program with a rujum as well so we have come full circle through a challenging and fun program. We will keep you posted on when the Pioneers take off, land and will arrive home.
Unified & Strong,
THE ILEAD TEAM
