I participated on Taglit-Birthright Israel in August 2018. The highlight for me was experiencing Jerusalem, from walking around the old city to spending time at the Machane Yehuda market. It was an extremely memorable experience. I loved the markets overall, and Machane Yehuda stood out to me with all the amazing food and baked goods. I’m still dreaming of them today! It was a great opportunity to explore the city of Jerusalem and spend time with the other participants from the trip that came from across Canada and Israel.
I am involved now with the Young Leadership Council because I want to help young adults that have been on Taglit-Birthright Israel stay connected to their experiences and the organization, as well as support others to be able to receive the gift of experiencing the amazing trip to Israel.
