#WhyIsraelWhyNow This summer nine college students from around the USA were given the opportunity to travel to Israel for five weeks, assimilate into their every day culture, and learn about their business life in internships throughout Jerusalem. Through this program, our hope is to bring back valuable experiences not only to college, but to the various Jewish summer camps we work at across New England. Being apart of such a wide Jewish community, we deeply care about Israel and all of the events that go on there.
Last November, a member of our community, Ezra Schwartz, lost his life due to an unfathomable terrorist attack while he was studying in Israel. Similar to us, Ezra was hoping to bring back his experiences to his Jewish summer camp, and to show the rest of the world that Israel is a special place to travel to, no matter what the circumstances may be. Ezra may not have been able to voice this message himself, but we want to make sure that he is heard. One should never have to question whether or not Israel is safe enough to travel to. Instead, one should understand that Israel will always be a place to call home now and forever. We want to share the story of WHY Ezra could call ISRAEL his home, and WHY the nine of us as well as so many others are still able to think of it as home NOW. #WhyIsraelWhyNow
