Joshua Eisen, Taylor Kobran, Melanie Levine, David Lifschitz, Brad Meisel, Rachel Weber, and Jamie Klein were selected for the Birthright Trip to Israel that took place in January 2011. They met new Israeli friends who traveled with them providing a first hand look into Israel. They attended a meeting at the Hebrew University, visited the Jewish People's memorial to those murdered during the Shoah (Holocaust), Israel's national cemetery where the leaders of the nation buried their solders who sacrificed their life for the nation, attended a show by the "Nalag'at" Theater Company, rode camels, and walked the famous desert stronghold overlooking the Dead Sea complete with palaces of King Herod and the site of the last battle against the Romans during the First uprising. They had an absolutely wonderful and exciting experience, and recommend anyone who qualifies for this trip to register as soon as the next opportunity comes up!!
