Stories from the Holy Land



Although it only lasted 9 short days, my trip to Israel and the West Bank left a strong impact on me. As many may already know, my main intention was to do volunteer work on a farm, but I ended up traveling a little bit as well. As I process what I saw and experienced in my most recent trip to the Middle East, I’d like to share my trip with you through anecdotes under the name, “Stories from the Holy Land.” I am not writing to spark political debate or criticize Israeli or Palestinian society, rather my intention is to explain what I saw and  show you what life is like in Israel and the West Bank today.
