Our Makor Chaim Israel Exchange Program has completed its first full week!  Talmidim have been busy learning and exploring Eretz Yisrael.  This week included a hike to Tel Azeka, where talmidim learned about the land and its significance in the history of the Jewish people, the first Shabbos in yeshiva featuring a special Melave Malka with Rav David Rabinovich, a trip through the tunnels under the Kotel dating back thousands of years to hear a sicha from Rav Dov Zinger, a prominent Israeli educator and the Rosh Yeshiva of Makor Chaim, a shiur at Yeshivat Hakotel, and a tiyul to the Zomet Institute where they learned about the halachos of Shabbos, pirsumei nisa, and the creative solutions they have developed to enable technological products, such as electric wheelchairs and security vehicles, to be used on Shabbos.  Talmidim also had the opportunity to meet the Makor Chaim talmidim who will be spending the upcoming academic quarter at MTA.  What an incredible week!
