I learned about our Jewish past, by experiencing Jewish life in Prague, Berlin, and Poland, before and after the Holocaust, experienced our Jewish present, by witnessing and participating in Jewish life in every corner of Israel, and connected to our Jewish future by reaffirming my Jewish faith and creating a lasting connection to Israel.
[USY on Wheels] was without a doubt the best summer of his life. How many teenagers get to daven in three national parks with other teenagers, willingly? Since he got back he tells me there isn’t a day that he doesn’t think about the trip and the friends who he made. Wheels may be over, but he has the memories of a trip most kids can only dream about.
When we speak to our daughter we can hear the glow in her voice as she describes not only the excitement of physically being at the historic sites, but the emotional connection she is feeling with her new friends…We feel so grateful to have been able to give this opportunity to our daughter, as she will carry these memories with her always.
