The most meaningful moment on my Birthright trip was when we visited Jerusalem. I grew up learning about the first and second temple in Jerusalem as religious stories. When I visited the western wall and took a tour of the excavations of the old city it really sunk in how rich the history if the Jewish people in Jerusalem is. I don't think I fully understood the gravity of this until I saw it with my own eyes. I think it is important for Jews to go on birthright so that they can really understand how connected we are to the land.
