There were so many beautiful places in israel it's so hard to choose! I would have so say Tsfat. I felt so connected to the energy of the city. Something about it seemed very holy and untouched and seems to have stayed frozen in time. The stones, little ally ways, small shops, orthodox community is just very interesting to me. Its also just a beautiful place. One of the most inspiring moments on my trip was when the Maccabi team won for the first time in a very long time and Rabin square turned into a hundreds of men and women singing and dancing together. Was a once in a lifetime experience to be apart of that.
I think it's important to go on birthright because of how much closer you feel to the people, culture, history, and the land as a whole. I know for me I started really wanting to advocate for Israel along with realizing how apart of I felt there, and feeling like it was a home away from home. Its so important for young jewish people to know the history and stay educated on what's happened and whats going on right now and what they can do to be apart of and be one with the Jewish people. Also getting to make new friendships and having this amazing trip with a group of people who some of which you'll keep in touch with and just have this cool bond through this trip as well!
