Practice day 5

An assist goes out to my assistant coach Elliot Steinmentz for documenting the history surrounding our Israel connect trip today. 

We have now moved on from training camp to the Israel Connect Program.  We were up for practice at 6:30 AM. 

Later, we took buses to Tel Aviv where we visited Rabin Square (the place of Yitzhak Rabin's assassination), as well as the house where Ben Gurion declared Israel's independence on May 14, 1948, a Friday, just like today.

In between, we visited the old city of Yaffo, an old port city right on the Mediterranean.  We ended the day with a Shabbat service outside at the Kfar Maccabiah followed by a delegation, Shabbat dinner.
