onward israel

"Although the sun has set on my Israel experience, I learned something very quick: my love for Israel is overwhelming. From the minute I arrived, I was immediately welcomed by all the natives. Truly everyone I have met on this life journey will leave an impact in my heart. Being able to live and immerse myself in a new country has been a positive, optimistic experience I wish more students had the chance to experience. I can confidently say the best experiences of Israel must be free... or purchasing falafel and hummus, of course! With the lessons I learned, I am a better person than I was yesterday."  

-Julia Cordover
