Falafel and the beach — Sababa!

Sarah Plovnick is a participant on the East Bay Community’s Birthright Israel trip. She is sharing photos of what she’s experiencing, Hebrew words she’s learning, and glimpses of what life is like on a Birthright bus for ten days. Yalla!

Word of the Day: Sababa

Definition: Cool

How to use it: In response to anything and everything!

Food of the day: Falafel

Even falafel from a mall is great falafel in Israel! It came in a fluffy pita complete with hummus, veggies, pickles and tahini. Yum.

Photo of the day:

First stop falafel, second stop the beach! This particular beach houses the ruins of the Cesarea aqueduct, which circulated water for an important port city for the Roman Empire.
