After three days of pure science at the Weizmann Institute, the PGIA students and their chaperones were able to visit some of the most historic sites on earth. They stayed in a bedouin tent in the Masada Desert and hiked to the top of the plateau for sunrise and a tour of ruins that date back to the first century BC. They swam in the Dead Sea and apparently had a lovely mud spa as well. On to Jerusalem and seeing firsthand this historic place that evokes so much passion around the world.
We wish them peace and safety in their travels back home to friends and families that have missed them ever so much!
