    “Da lifnei mi atah omed-Know before whom you stand.” These words were presented to me as I stood on a rock in the woods peering through the trees to see the lake in front of me.

  • URJ Summer Program: What I Learned on Mitzvah Corps

    Most Jewish people have the opportunity to go to Israel at least once in their life. Only a fraction of these people experience Israel the way I had the chance to this summer.

When it was finally time to go, my teacher, Avra, announced our trip day activity would be feeding the elderly at a community center. I was disappointed. Other majors were going to have fun, but I was stuck feeding the elderly! I couldn’t think of one good result.
