Hi, As a leader for this year’s M-Trek, I am very excited I get the chance to write about the experiences we’ve been through.
We just finished the Jerusalem part of the trip. Jerusalem was a very special experience. Our group is very diverse – Jews, Christians and even Hindus. Therefore, every person had a different perspective to Jerusalem. We visited both Jewish and Christian holy sites. An amazing quote I heard from one of our travelers is “I feel like I get to see where god had his weakest moment”. We all put notes in the Wailing Wall and went on a night walking tour of the beautiful city. We also had cool dinners at the new Shababeek in East Jerusalem and Imma restaurants in West Jerusalem and roamed through the old city streets.
As a born and raised Tel Avivian, Jerusalem has always felt somewhat abroad for me. At these times it is very important to have a good guide. Our guide, Yael, was great and really knew how to tie up the whole day as a big story.
Today we went to Yad Vashem. I was very impressed how even people who have no correlation what soever to the Jewish people were even more thorough than me in there. We ended the day with a picnic for which we bought all the stuff at the Machne Yehuda market. I’m really excited for tomorrow - we will climb up Masada in the morning.
Every year second year students from the Ross School of Business at University take first year students on a fun trip somewhere around the world. This year, we are doing the first ever trip to Israel.
