I met 39 other American’s with Judaic lineage and 2 American trip organizers at JFK airport. Together we flew to Israel where we met our guide,Einav, guard, Dvir, and a handful of Israeli counterparts. Once the group was complete we boarded a bus and took a whirlwind 10 day tour of the magnificent country where we all experienced Birthright!
Here you will find my ramblings coupled with pictures to retell that story; but first, I begin with one of my favorite excursions that happened to take place after Birthright ended. I extended my stay in Israel and welcomed my brother and parents to the country. Among our adventures was a day trip from Eilat, over the border to Jordan in search of the ancient city of Petra.
