Birthright Thoughts








Thank you Rabbi Zev, donors and everyone who helped facilitate my Birthright trip this past summer. It was an incredible experience touring with friends, peers, and especially the Israeli soldiers, who were the highlight of the trip. We connected with the soldiers from day one and quickly realized they were just like us only with an Israeli upbringing. It was hard to believe that they were our age and had already experienced so much by growing up in Israel and serving in the IDF. By the end of the trip, the soldiers were completely integrated into our group and it was hard to say goodbye. I’m excited to return to Israel in the future and having great friends to reconnect with there.
