Bar bat mitzvah experience from Katie
Katie Berkowitz, '12: Today five members of our group chose to share a pivotal experience of their own journeys with the rest of our group. This was a powerful experience not only for those at center stage, but one of the more inspiring moments for all of us. It was beautiful to see people connecting to Judaism in a new way. Those who spoke expressed what we all feel, the past eight days have impacted us all and will serve as an important experience in shaping our journeys to come. The event was appropriately capped off with a visit to the western wall, a focal point of many of the ideas and experiences that have filled our discussions and travels.
