Bridge The Gap 2023 Sponsored by Ronny and Toby Hersh

On Monday March 13th, over 70 community young adults studying in Israel joined the SCA “Bridge the Gap” program. The day began with prayers and breakfast at the Inbal Hotel followed by 3 remarkable sessions. Aaron Shasha, SCA young adult program director, held a workshop addressing student’s concerns about adjusting to life back at home and how to continue their growth. “For the Sake of Argument” led an engaging discussion on tools and skills to use when talking to those you disagree with. Finally, Avi Posen, from Jewish Unpacked, spoke about how to reconcile with difficult topics in Israel’s past. After a delicious lunch and a break for minha, the real fun began! We rode into the desert where Rabbi David Zeit spoke about the relevance of our location in the Tanach. We then broke up into teams and played laser tag in the desert. Participants had to strategize and use their team building skills to secure a victory! It’s so special having all these young adults connecting and bonding together. We wrapped up with a bang – a BBQ celebration in the desert! Following Arbit, we set out on an evening hike that led us to a surprise final destination where we enjoyed delicious food and danced the night away. Huge thanks to everyone who helped make this unforgettable experience happen! for all the information on this amazing program click here
