Our goal over the remaining two weeks in our trip is to continue to build upon these first impressions.
Hedges writes that “we have two thought systems: system 1, which is fast, intuitive and emotional; and system 2, which is slow, contemplative and logical.” Our trip is designed to touch on both of these systems whether we are walking the streets of Jerusalem or listening to our guide share with us the history of landmarks along the road. Hearing these initial reflections of our students confirms that they are using both of these thought systems.
If you’d like to enjoy the trip vicariously, please take a look at the Facebook album and follow us on Twitter and Instagram. Our students are also writing longer reflections to share how the trip is impacting them via blogs on our website.
Shabbat Shalom from Tzfat,
