I like to make sure I don't miss anything, and as I tried to 'cover my bases' before leaving Israel, I had a group dinner with some Masa fellows who were living in Petach Tikva. As we were taking a group photo, a nearby table asked to take a photo with me, haha - and here it is!
While I had a largely negative experience with Israel Experience as part of Masa Israel Teaching Fellowship, I really appreciated and enjoyed my time spent in Israel. The apartment above mine, and a neighboring apartment in Rishon LeZion, had some great fellows with whom I've kept in touch. Before I left the country and returned to the US, we had a group dinner, and a great time.
Huh, I guess I liked my white t-shirt, haha. And if you look closely, you can see...that I seem to wear something with floral or foliage-print every day.
Everyone asked if I was going to visit them during this 2017-2018 school year, and I said that if I found $4,000 laying around, I might just try. For now, I'm preparing for the rest of my year and the plans I already have before me.
