Our dear Shinshinim: Tal, Amit, Shahaf and Eyal went back home to Israel for a short vacation after serving our community for six months.
They will be back on February 21st for another six months before they will return to Israel and start their military service.
Tal is in Kfar Kish, a moshav (small village) in the Lower Galilee (Population 520) Eyal is in Tel Aviv – “The city that never sleeps” (Population 430,000), Amit is in Ra’anana (a city in the southern Sharon (bordering with Kfar Saba and Herzliya) (Population 72,000)
And Shahaf is in Kibbutz Tlalaim in Ramamat Hanegev (Population 400).
Below are few pictures and descriptions from their break:
Tal at home (Yes, she has few horses…) – her family owns a bed and breakfast in the country side…
Shahaf and his baby brother
Eyal eating his favorite Israeli dish- Shaksuka. Shakshuka is a dish of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, chili peppers and onions….
Amit is at a Café with her best high school friends some of them are already in Basic Training…
