The weather was gloomy, but the spirts were bright and soaring as Bi-Cultural Day’s School’s 8th grade class departed on Monday, May 2nd for their Israel Experience Trip, a nearly month-long journey that they have been preparing for and learning about since kindergarten. The itinerary includes experiencing the many cultural and spiritual sights that Israel has to offer and walking in the footsteps of their Jewish ancestors who they’ve been studying throughout their course of studies at Bi-Cultural. This much-anticipated annual event provided an opportunity for students to synthesize much of the learning, message, and spirit of their years of study at Bi-Cultural.
