Everywhere you look there’s history. Thousands of years of human growth and development concentrated in one place. The feeling is palpable. Remnants of past civilizations are incorporated seamlessly with modern architecture, and it’s a constant reminder of everything Israel represents. Whether it’s praying at the Western Wall or walking the ancient streets of Akko, I feel a part of something greater here in Israel. I am connected to the land, the history, and the people. It’s an incredible experience unique to Israel, and I’m so privileged to be a part of this program.
