Hello Friends and Family,

Please enjoy some photos from the group’s time in the community of Munsiyari.

  1. Photo 1-Stav and Ziv led a beautiful Rosh Hashanah ceremony for the BYIndia group and their homestay siblings.
  2. Photo 2- Over the past 2 weeks the group has been working to acquire honey, apples, and pomegranates and Malika (the group’s facilitator during their stay in Munsiyari) helped them bake an apple cake in a solar cooker.
  3. Photo 3-The Munsiyari women’s collective. Most of the women pictured are also homestay mothers for the BYIndia students.

The main photo is also of the group in Munsiyari.

Everyone is doing well. Tomorrow, 9/21, the group will say their goodbyes to their host community and travel towards Kausani where they will spend two nights and visit the Laxmi Ashram. They will then travel on to Ranikhet and will settle in for their time at the Center for the Contemplation of Nature.

More updates soon!
