BCHA students on the road in Israel

Eighth-graders at Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy, who are in the midst of their month-long experience in Israel, got up at 4 a.m. to begin a hike up Har Tzvachot to see the sunrise. “We made it to the top 10 minutes before the sun rose over the mountains,” reported Elana Trombka, a middle school Judaics studies teacher at the Stamford day school who is accompanying the students on their journey. “From Har Tzfachot you can see Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt,” she said. “We also davened Shacharit at the top of the mountain.” Later in the day, they toured the caves which were used as hideouts during Bar Kochva’s revolt at the end of the Second Temple period.
