After applying numerous years to Birthright, an organization which sends Jewish individuals between the ages of 18 and 26 to Israel, I was selected!!! Just remembering the emotions I felt that day makes me want to TYPE IN ALL CAPS, and SCREAM like theres no tomorrow. In a few months, I would be taking in the Israeli sights and even more importantly, in my opinion, eating all the delicious food! Hummus and felafel anyone?
A little about Birthright:
Since the inaugural Taglit-Birthright Israel flight in the winter of 2000, more than 340,000 young Jewish people from 62 countries have received the gift of a free trip to Israel.
340,000 of us?!?! That’s a lot of Schwarma!
What to Expect:
basically the time of your life.
Here’s what to do if you want to participate:
They say the trip lasts 10 days, but the memories last a lifetime. This couldn’t be any truer.
