Israel (Part 1)

In honor of the fact that it was exactly a year ago today that I left for Israel, I thought I would post some photos of my trip. Last year, I went on birthright for two weeks with forty other 18 to 22-year-olds from around the U.S. through Taglit Birthright. Luckily, I got to go with two friends of mine (Avra and Kira), which I think made the trip easier and better since I already knew two people and we'll always remember that we went together.

If you're under 26 and Jewish, I would definitely recommend going on birthright since it's a wonderful experience and it's free! If you're over 26 or not Jewish, you should make plans to see this amazing country!

I met some extraordinary people, saw marvelous things, did incredible things, took hundreds of pictures, connected to a country and a people, felt like I belonged, had tons of fun, and I will never forget this experience. EVER.

Here are the first couple days of my trip...

  1. I've always wanted to do birthright, but I unfortunately only have two months before I am 27. My parter did travel to Israel on birthright, and he said it was a wonderful experience. I love all of the photographs- truly beautiful.
