What an amazing day today at the ECC! We celebrated Yom Ha'atzmaut by getting our passports stamped and boarding the ELAL plane. After watching the safety video (in English and Hebrew) the children were "flown" to Israel to see many beautiful sites such as the Kotel, The Dead Sea, Tel Aviv, Shuk Ha Carmel, and more! We sang Hatikvah and danced to Israeli songs. Morah Rena joined the program and taught us all about Israel by using the large Israeli floor map. Some of our children arrived wearing their Israel sun hats, light up headbands and 70 year glasses. Here are some of the highlights of the day.
