Forever changed

The summer of 1977 changed my life forever.

My parents, of blessed memory, provided me with the opportunity to travel to Israel through the American Zionist Youth Foundation. Along with 27 other college-aged students from across the United States, we embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

We spent six weeks exploring the State of Israel. We began our journey on a Kibbutz up north, from there we went to Yad Vashem, Haifa, Tel Aviv, the dessert, Masada, and of course, Jerusalem. Seeing the Wailing Wall for the first time at night brought tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat. I tried so hard to express my feelings in my journal, but I just couldn’t find the words to truly grasp my emotions. It was so overwhelming, magnificent, plus inspiring. A night I will never forget!
