Day 1:

Begin with a visit to the Palmach Museum, where we "join up" with the paramilitary fighting forces from Israel's pre-statehood days. Continue to the Rabin Museum, where we find fascinating documentation of the State of Israel's history, interwoven with the story of the slain Prime Minister's life. Time to freshen up and relax at our hotel before joining together for Shabbat dinner this evening. Overnight in Tel Aviv.

Bialik House, known as Beit Bialik in Hebrew, was the home of poet Chaim Nachman Bialik, from 1925 to 1933. The house is now a museum featuring Bialik's works, including an exhibit of all his books, with translations into 28 languages.
