RWB dancers and staff got an early morning start on their third full day in Israel. Just after 8:00 am, the group boarded a tour bus bound for Jerusalem for a day of sightseeing.
On their way into the city of Jerusalem, the group passed a bridge that reminded them of Winnipeg's Provencher Bridge.
On RWB's second day in Israel, Company dancers and staff had an opportunity to visit some of the historic sights of Tel Aviv. This included a stop at Independance Hall where the independence of the State of Israel was first declared. Following lunch, the group traveled just north of Tel Aviv to Caesarea.

On their first day in Israel, RWB dancers and staff participated a ribbon-cutting event for Tel Aviv's new Playground for Peace. Premier Greg Selinger and the Mayor of Tel Aviv, Mr. Huldai, were present at the event. Following the dedication ceremony, RWB dancers taught a class for local youth.
