My favorite day was when we went to the Western Wall in Jerusalem. The wall made me feel so proud to be a Jew. Not only did it make me proud, but it made me closer to all my friends on the trip.
I have met amazing people and love the Israelis that are on this trip with me. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I will never forget for the rest of my life!
When it got darker, we went out into the desert itself and stargazed. This was something that I really did not expect to be as spiritual as it was. There's just something about being in the middle of the desert with the only sound of silence that makes this very meaningful.
The adventures are phenomenal and the memories will last a lifetime. While we venture through Israel, everyone is just trying to find their place in the world and discover what being a Jew means to them. This trip has immersed all of us in Israeli culture and truly brought out our inner connection to Israel!
The reward for our courage was rafting on the Jordan River, we cruised, we battled, we dropped, we flipped, and had so much fun just being together!
We started our day with a challenging yet exciting hike in the Jilabun. What was most exciting was that, once we got to the bottom, we saw a gorgeous waterfall.
