I visited Israel with a Birthright Group December 2018 through January 2019. As someone who grew up with a Jewish father and a Christian mother, it was an honor to visit Israel (for free) and explore my Jewish heritage. We had an amazing tour guide Leiah, who taught us so much about Israeli culture, people, and history. While many young people go on this trip alone, I was able to attend with two of my closest friends from Philadelphia. Israel is a phenomenal city. I felt extremely safe and enjoyed meeting young soldiers. I would love to visit again in the summer and enjoy their warm weather.
