On Monday, I shared a bit about my experience at a Shabbat dinner in Israel. In this post, I want to focus more on how my trip to Israel affected me personally.
At Princeton, I am part of a Christian fellowship called Princeton Faith and Action (PFA for short). Last fall, PFA announced that it was working with a group called Passages to organize a 10-day trip to Israel during the summer. The trip was not only shockingly affordable ($600 all-inclusive) but also an incredible opportunity to visit the Holy Land where my Christian faith has its roots. So I signed up to go immediately, figuring that this might be the only chance in my life to see Israel.
