While traveling in Israel this summer, my family had the opportunity to stay at Livnot and join the current Livnot group in a number of activities. We volunteered painting a bomb shelter and visited an old age home. We joined the Livnot chevre in meals.
The highlight for my kids was partaking in the pita baking, ceramics, basket weaving, and wool activities in the Kahal. My boys loved doing excavation work and finding many centuries old discoveries.
It was especially meaningful for me as a Livnot alumni to bring my kids back to the place that had such a profound influence on my Jewish development. I highly recommend spending at least a couple days of ones Israel trip at Livnot. It can transform a normal vacation into a very meaningful experience for an entire family!
