Celebrating Israel @ 70

Today we celebrated Israel’s 70th Yom HaAtzmaut by experiencing Israel through science, music, art, dancing, sports and of course food.

We learned about Israel’s continued hope for peace through music and art.



We ate falafel in a pita with all the fixings.





We played Ga Ga, a game similar to dodgeball, which was brought to the US by Israeli counselors working at Jewish summer camps.  





We learned about Israeli innovation of drip irrigation which saves  large parts of humanity from starving and how Tel Aviv began in 1909 as a small settlement on the sand dunes and now it is Israel’s 2nd largest city with high rise buildings.  We worked in teams to design a high rise building from Pasta.

We learned new Israeli folk dancing moves from Morah Ilana.
