Well, the ball has started rolling for both excavation seasons, with lots of planning, work in preparation, and so much excitement!!!!
We have a few large groups and random volunteers for the upcoming spring season, and we have begun receiving forms from volunteers for the summer season – remember, its never too early!!!
For those of you coming for the summer season, it looks like we will be staying at Kibbutz Ha-Lamed Hey. They have a website (in hebrew only, but you could see some pictures:
From the name of the website, you can see that the location of the kibbutz is along the valley of Elah – the location of the battle of David and Goliath. there is also a historical event dating to the establishment of the state of Israel, involving 35 fighters in a brigade, trying to make its way to isolated settlements, who were killed. for more on this story – AMIT can add comments.
Can’t wait to get to Burna!
