I've been attending my Jewish summer sleep away camp for seven years now and
I've always dreamed to get to this point. It's been my goal to go on a trip
to Israel with my camp for as long as I can remember, but unfortunately I've
learned it's not that easy. The price is overbearing and I really need
financial help to achieve my dream. Camp means absolutely everything to me,
and it is extremely important for me to be able to go on this trip to Israel
this summer, 2014. This visit, I believe, would not only allow me to learn
so much more about Israel; but also about myself and the connection that I
have with G-d and my Jewish identity. At the same time, I would be spending
an amazing 4 weeks in Israel and 1 week in Prague and Poland with my best
I grew up learning about this magical promised land and it's finally my time
to experience it. My parents have never taken me, so this would be my first
time. And let's just say, "excited" is an understatement to me.
Thank you so much for helping me in my journey to Israel!
