Lab Retreat

The last two days we spent on our annual lab retreat. The idea is to go out of the university and spend two days in which we get a chance to hear what everyone has been up to and plans to do next. It is also a chance to bond socially.

This year we met in Netiv HaLamed-Heh, a kibutz south-west of Jerusalem.

In what used to be an old barn there is a site that now hosts weddings and seminars. We had a nice and specious room for the talks.

The talks covered a lot of materials, and so we needed some breaks to enjoy the sun.

In the late afternoon we had a special treat, a talk about therapy using puppets.

We then prepared food for the night. Moran found a yeast-shaped potato, which was clearly an important omen.

The potato went into the pot with all the other ingredients and onto the fire. After an hour or so, we had a tasty meal.

The next day we continued with the talks.

We then got into the cars and drove up to a nice hill, and had a lunch picnic, and a short trip to nearyby ruins.
