I am home, y’all! I just got back yesterday morning from a volunteer mission in my homeland, Israel, and it was absolutely incredible. I intern for an organization called Jewish National Fund, and they do all kinds of projects in Israel, America, and all over to make the world a better place for Jews and non-Jews. So for 6 days, forty other college students and I went all over Israel learning about JNF’s projects and helping out at some of them. It feels so good to do good things for others; I’ve loved volunteering since I was young, and I encourage everyone to try doing random acts of kindness every day.
Israel is full of lemon, orange, and olive trees!I am always in awe of how gorgeous this country is.Hiking is a big part of Israeli life. I love how many trails there are all over the country.Beautiful detailing in the ancient city of Tsfat. Found my favorite buddy in the ancient city of Akko.Room with a view!Planting herbs!An afternoon in the holiest city in the world, Jerusalem.Soaking up Mediterranean sun in Tel Aviv!Swear to god, I almost adopted this puppy.Flew home with this cute rainbow reflection.
