After nearly 18 hour of travel time, our group of young adults touched down in Israel. For many, this has been the first time stepping foot in the Jewish homeland. Excitement, exhaustion, and elation are just a taste of the range of emotions our participants have been feeling throughout their first half of the trip. From learning about Israeli current affairs to making Dabo (a special bread) with Ethiopian Jews to celebrating our first Shabbat together at Kibbutz Ashdot Yaakov, we have already learned so much about the rich history of Israel and our Jewish roots. Our guide, Oshri, is full of amazing stories and deep knowledge of all of the sites we have seen so far, and we can’t wait to explore more! We will keep you posted on our next adventures! Stay tuned!
