Tiyul Sukkot

Sunday to Wednesday, the Workshoppers were hiking through the Golan Heights with their Australian, South African, New Zealand and British counterparts. They hiked through the Yehudiya, Zavitan, Meshushim pools and the Zaki stream. Part of the hikes went through streams, and each day also involved a lot of swimming breaks. On the first day, each hiking group also built their own sukkah, which stayed up at the campsite throughout the tiyul. On Sunday night, the Australians planned a fun erev tarbut (evening program), on Monday night there were chuggim (including stargazing, scary stories, a Hebrew sing a long, and acrobalance), and on Tuesday the Workshoppers planned a medura/musicale with a campfire. They also prepared their own dinner, poike, a stew with rice, vegetables and meat prepared in a special pot over a fire. The tiyul also involved a lot of conversations and comparisons about Habonim around the world, and the chanichim learned a lot from each other. They will get another chance to hang out over Rabin Seminar, Nov 7-8.
