According to an unwritten Israeli law, one must vacation in the North during the month of August and in Eilat during Chanukah.
But rebels that we are (why do I hear snickering from the audience? ;-)), we like to mix it up a bit, and so, as you will recall, we spent Shabbat Chanukah 5669 in Achziv.
And then this year, we decided to raise the stakes and spent a long Chanukah weekend in the Golan.
Specifically, we stayed in a beautiful tzimmer (refers to one of the many cabins/bungalows/vacation homes which dot Northern Israel) in Avnei Eitan, a moshav in the southern Golan Heights.
And now, without further ado, here are some scenes from our trip. As always, click on the pictures for a closer view.
In short, we had a wonderful time and highly recommend Avnei Eitan as a vacation spot. Also, once again, YZG and I would like to thank our parents for a very special weekend.
And now back to work and school.
Those groans you hear in the background are the kids digging out their knapsacks…
