Reflection from Maya G.

Dear Friends and Family,

This week has taught Journey #1 about the diversity that makes up Israeli society!

Here is a reflection from Maya Goldenberg, Israel Journey #1:

“These past few days in Israel have been life changing. Both the way in which I view Judaism and the way in which I view Israel have evolved. For example, after visiting the Western Wall, I saw the true strength of Judaism and how it persisted throughout history. Also, now I see Israel as not only the Jewish homeland, but as a home to many different groups of people. This new outlook came after taking part in programming such as: learning about the Baha’i people, eating a traditional Druze lunch, and meeting Arab students. I can’t wait to see how my perspective continues to change by the end of my trip.” -Maya Goldenberg

Best,
Israel Journey #1
