    Discovering Oneself

    This post first appeared on Israel Campus Roundtable. Just over one week ago I landed in Israel, a place that is simultaneously foreign yet familiar. This is my fifth trip to the country.

    Jerusalem Beginnings

    This post first appeared on Israel Campus Roundtable. I’ve already learned so much on the Onward program including where to find the cheapest delicious falafel, how to travel from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv, and not to eat Marzipan rugelach while typing a blog post because chocolate will get on your computer keys. On the bus […]
