  • Taglit-Birthright Israel | Bus 872 heads north, and on to Tel Aviv!
    May 21, 2015
    Bus 872 in JerusalemYesterday, we visited Itay's kibbutz, and it was really cool to see where he grew up. A lot of us didn't understand what a kibbutz is until we visited. It was interesting to see that Itay grew up so differently than we did - but we are still very similar. We visited Itay's house and swam and canoed in the Sea of Galilee.

    May 19, 2015
    Today we learned about mysticism in a state of sleepiness. Tsefat is a picturesque town that emits a sense of history with its cobblestone paths. However, we were surprised about how heavily a part art played in the culture.

I suspect most of you never had the chance to meet Leonard, but it is safe to say that NC Hillel would not be a shadow of what it is today without the bold leadership and remarkable support of Leonard and his beloved wife, Tobee.
