Kibbutz, Wine Tasting, and other adventures
This week was full of adventures! On Wednesday, we visited a kibbutz outside of Jerusalem. A kibbutz is an idealogical community where goods and profits are shared among the people who live there. This kibbutz also has a winery and a chocolate shop, so in addition to our tour we got to sample wines made on the kibbutz and try making our own chocolates! Buoyed by my relative success in the chocolate making enterprise, I decided to invite some friends over for a Thursday night dinner party. In Israel, the weekend is Friday and Saturday, but we have classes on Sunday, so Thursday is our night to go out and experience the nightlife, and then on Friday night we celebrate Shabbat and relax.
