Bar Kochba Rebellion


Today we went to see caves and a Roman amphitheater that were from the time of the Bar Kochba Rebellion. It was honestly my favorite tiyul so far. Learning about Rabbi Akiva and Bar Kochba was really cool. They both had very interesting stories. We talked a lot about Rabbi Akiva’s values which was cool and got me thinking about my own personal values. We were talking about if there are any values that we would die for. The first thing that popped into my head wasn’t something that I would die for, but something that I was willing to get in a lot of trouble for. The day of the walkout from the Parkland Shooting my district said we would get suspended or even expelled if we walked out of school. I didn’t care and I actually lead the walkout. This tiyul was so much fun. I got to really think which was awesome! 10/10 day! - Lara
