Anyone can book themselves a trip to Israel with a hotel stay, planned tours and cafe meals.
But visiting the land with this delightful assortment of people, who had the same goal, to make a difference to the Jewish people, relate to the locals and see things from a totally grounded perspective – was a gem of an opportunity! It is the kind of experience that appears to be wrapped up in a big, plastic garbage bag involving sweat and litter, but it is just the medicine that your soul might need.
I know it’s cliche, but come along, because your life will not be the same. We only need to be willing to sign up, show up with soul and spirit. And being willing to dance doesn’t hurt, because it’s likely there will be dancing.
