NFTY-GER: Israel from the Inside

This summer I had the most incredible experiences of my life. I traveled the world, made lifelong friends, learned about the history of my people, and strengthened my faith in Judaism. I was able to experience Israel in a way that all Israelis spend their lives– in a time of war.
