NFTY organizes this trip so if our parents want to visit us, and the country, they can. The pilgrimage happens over the course of 9 days, giving the parents just enough time to have fun with their kids as well as see some amazing things around Israel such as Masada, the Dead Sea, Jerusalem, Ein Kerem, and tons of other cool places.

A friend whose son is finishing up a year in Bosnia forwarded me a list of suggestions for how to help a child return from an experience abroad. I thought it looked quite useful, so thought I would share it here.

This experience is like nothing else Jake has ever had in his lifetime. His spirituality and level of maturity has escalated to a level one could only dream for their child to achieve. His ability to love a country he his learned about since early childhood has come to fruition as his understanding of the importance of the State of Israel comes home with him never so proud to be a Jew.
