CAARI Participants arrive in Israel! Jan. 9-10

Welcome to CAARI 2017!  They came from Boston, Toronto, New Jersey, California, Montreal, Maryland, and Virginia for the Hafia-Galilee portion of the program  We are still waiting for 3 to arrive whose flights have been delayed by weather.  Ah – winter!  It is wonderful to see those that have been on the CAARI program before and those that on are new,  We were warmly welcomed by the Prima City Staff and the new look at the Hotel. 
Our first touring day began by departing Tel Aviv for the Lavi Forest where we planted trees in a very moving ceremony remembering CAARI participants who passed away this past year and participants remembered and honored their loved ones. We then traveled a short distance to 
Moshav Zippori were we met Ayelah at Resh Lachish Estate Olive Oil Facility, where they grow their own olives organically. 

Ayelet, is a world known authority on olive oil production. She explained the enemies of olive oil, sun light, plastic bottles etc., and we tasted a number of varieties of olive oil.

Our last stop after lunch was Zippori, the archaeological site, that was where the Mishnah was codified in the Third Century CE. The synagogue was amazing as was the beautiful mosaics.  We were all happy to meet the staff and the charming Bay Club Hotel where we are staying while up north. 
Enjoy the pictures! 

Regards to all!
