What is a birthright trip?
I don't believe there are enough words to describe a ten day spritual, historical, and cultural journey with 45 strangers that you eventually develop some of the best memories of your life with. From emotional highs hiking up Mt. Arbel and the beautiful views of the Sea of Galilee, to the lows and mourning that you experience at Yad Vashem, the Israeli Holocaust Memorial Museum, the memories you gain will never be forgotten, and the attachments to the people will never be broken.
I know how cliche it sounds, but like I wrote, even if you can find the right words to describe the trip, there aren't enough of them. The most vivid memories are some of the sights: the scenery, the people, and the cities. What the media portrays of Israel is completely different than actually experiencing it. Green, rolling hills in the north, beautiful beaches along the Mediterranean Sea, the Sea of Galilee, and the mountings surrounding the Dead Sea, and the Negev Desert in the South. Birthright teaches you the basics of Israel, but the desire to return and learn, see, and experience more exists more than ever.
