WOW! First ever Gilboa Ken in hot hot hot Las Vegas! We met up on Sat evening to a true Israeli feast, followed by Havdalla and a Rosh Hashana Peula about our past year and our ability to shape our future one in a positive way. Then we watched Mean Girls and had a slumber party with games late into the night. Sunday we all went to an air conditioned (thank God) indoor soccer field and played games there followed by a sweet peula. The ride was long but it was worth it. Ken Vegas is the new hot thing. Get there!

What an amazing day at the beach with the LA ken on 9/21. We all gathered at the base of the Santa Monica Pier and moved down to the sand on this beautiful day to play some games and learn each others names. 60 names to be exact! Thats right, the best attended LA Ken event in recent memory folks! We hung out on the sand and spent some of our time split up by kvutza (nitsanim- post-mbi represented!) to do some tikkun olam and pick up trash. Each kvutza picked up about a pound of trash each! Then we broke up into older and younger groups and discussed why we did what we did. Some more hanging out and playing in the waves and then it was time to say goodbye until Gilboa Fall Seminar Oct 10-12. Be sure to be there!
