Day 2 – Kayak on the Jordan River
Adjusting to the local time zone, your first stop will be Safed. Here, in the 16th century, an essential philosophy in Judaism developed known as Kabbalah. Nearby, we could also visit the tomb of the Rashbi. After a pleasant stroll in the alleys of the old city and possibly buying some Judaica souvenirs, we continue to drive through Rosh Pina, one of the very first Jewish settlements by the Zionist movement, and drive to the border with Lebanon. Viewing the border, we will discuss the current geo-political issues and visit Tel Hai. Here, some 100 years ago, a small Jewish farm was attacked and destroyed by neighboring Arabs, yet it became a symbol of the struggle of the Jews to resettle in the land of their ancestors. We will end the day with an extreme kayak adventure on the Jordan River.
