<h6> Ben Crain ’16 </h6>
On July 8, 2014, I began my journey to Israel. It was time. Time to get away from constant questions of, “Have you finished your summer reading?” and “Have you done any SAT prep?” Time for a break from my siblings. Time to meet the people on my B’nai Brit Youth Organization trip, or BBYO. Time to fulfill those service hours. Time to get to know my roots on a whole new level. Would I finally be able to counter those who had said we should divest in Israel, or that Israelis were as evil as white South Africans?
