Sunday we had an excellent briefing by General Yossi Kupperwasser, the Deputy Director General of the Israeli Ministry of Strategic Affairs. Then went off for a fascinating tour of the Masada fortress followed by a swim at the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth.
A great fun time was had by all as we smeared dead sea mud, known for its medicinal qualities , all over our bodies, and then played around in the Dead Sea waters, so buoyant that it is impossible to sink.
We then returned to Jerusalem for a meeting with Minister Yuli Edelstein, Minister of Diaspora and Public Affairs. After the briefing they went to dinner at Eucalyptus Restaurant, provided with an explanation of the famous spices and foods of the Holy Land by the Master Chef Moshe Basson.
