“As we touched down on the tarmac in Israel, I felt a sense of gratitude, relief and excitement. All the dreaming, questions, and anticipation that had been built up for many years would finally come together as we had the chance to explore and tour Israel for the next ten days. From the Golan Heights to Jerusalem, our individual relationships with Israel and our own Judaism grew exponentially. Praying at The Wall, doing community service at Metro West’s sister town of Merchavim, eating falafel, riding on camels, going out in Tel Aviv- the smiles never wore off!” – Julia Friedman
