Following dinner, the kids decorated a cake in the shape of Israel, marking the highlights of our trip with pieces of candy and frosting. Meanwhile, the adults had an opportunity to reflect on how the trip changed their understanding of Israel as a land, a country and a people. All regrouped, and everyone picked one photograph from the trip that was especially significant for them. In small groups, each person had the chance to explain why that photo was significant. Each family then made a poster with the photos and some text about their experience in Israel.
Finally, we marked the end of Shabbat and our time together with a Havdalah ceremony. It was wonderful to come back together as a group and share the memories from our trip together.
