“Anything we can do as the elders to afford our children the opportunity to see with their own eyes what really takes place in Israel must be done. This trip gives them the ability to form their own opinions and spark an interest to become better advocates for themselves, the Jewish people, and Israel. Denying them this opportunity would be a terrible loss for the Jewish people.”
