A Day in Israel (Full PDF)
In the Spring of 2014, I stumbled upon a really awesome opportunity to join the Stephen Wise Free Synagogue on their annual trip to Israel. The country itself, which is approximately the size of New Jersey, was a welcome host over the course of our ten-day journey. In two stark orange buses over 60 congregates, that all together encompassed a myriad of familial relations and generations, traversed the region’s sights and delights. By the end we had practically gone from one end of Israel to the other and back again. And, without fail, at the end of each day a different family unit, or small group of congregates, would write up their take on any choice selection of narrative highlights from that day.
