Summer Tiyulim Over Ulpan there were many Tiyulim around the country. From Masada to the Golan, the O.S.A. sponsored Tiyulim to enlighten the OYPers on the subject of Israel. Many memories were made through these trips that will last a lifetim e. Who can forget the candlelit snakepath up Masada or the sunrise we saw once on top. Our first visit to Ein Gedi witnessed the charred remains of the fire that destroyed the nature preserve, while our second visit showed us how nature rejuvenates itself, as the flora and fauna came to life once again. Climbing up Nahal Arugot in the middle of the summer was an experience which brought us the reality of dehydration. Yet we all survived to enjoy the natural springs and go swimming. These were all important Tiyulim which helped us learn about the land of Israel. In addition to these trips, the OSA sponsored an “Israeli Society Seminar” . A large group of us went up to Har Gilo field school, to hear various lectures on Israeli Society. Som e were on the conflict between the secular and the religious Jews, some were about the different tunes of settlem ents in Israel, some were even about different types of Israeli music. After a day and a half of listening to lectures we got to spend Shabbat in different settlem ents around Israel. On the West Bank Jewish settlem ent of Tekoa, we heard views on why such settlem ents should exist and remain there. In the development town o f Yerucham we heard about the plight of the Sephardic community that lives there. On the Moshav Kfar Saba we were treated to the good life. And on the religious Kibbutz we saw how the kibbutzniks lived communally, in a religious atmosphere. All in all, we learned a great deal about how different aspects o f Israeli society live. We shared our knowledge with all the people on the seminar and continued to talk about our experiences afterwards. In retrospect it was a Tiyul that was not to be missed. Stephanie Zimmer
