would be great to have some quotes too if we can share - will be helpful for people to see that people are enjoying Israel as we promote fall trips

Quotes just sent to me from our teens this morning: “The world believes this country is infatuated with turmoil, but the only infatuation is kindness. You’ll always find a friend in Tel Aviv waiting for you!” – Ari“There is nothing like a tall rickety tower, a beautiful Negev sunset, and some great friends to celebrate Israel with. This beautiful country stuns me every morning; thank you IST 2021” – Aaron“I love Israel. To know and learn about how thousands of years ago my ancestors were in this land has truly been special. Simultaneously, this trip has given me the opportunity to hear from multiple perspectives on modern day problems and form my own perception of Israel” – Manny“When you go to Israel, it’s not the diverse amazing culture that drags you deeper into the country but the sense of belonging and connectedness to your worlds roots” – Brayden“I think we’ve all realized that this trip isn’t an introduction to Israel, it’s a welcome home celebration” – Mitch
