We began our day Sunday at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, one of the most prominent Holocaust museums in the world.

There, our guide led us on the tour that looked at the Holocaust through the victims' perspectives. It was incredibly powerful.

Today, we went to the house of one of our Israeli Participants, Tess. Her family was very hospitable, and we got to eat snacks and swim in her pool! It was really a very cool experience.

What was your favorite part of the day and why? 
Speaking with Raecheli, an Ethiopian Jewish immigrant who lived in the Youth Village, and hearing her story. Speaking with her helped us appreciate how important Israel is to so many different people.
