The door is always open and the light is always on.
A Dark Part of Jewish and World History
After a great night in our first class hotel, we headed outside the old city to get a scenic view of the Temple Mount. Then we headed to Yad B'Yad, a school dedicated to connecting Israeli and Palestinian students by putting ten of each in every class. We toured the school and met the students that go there and in the process, learned a valuable lesson of coexistence. After spending lunch in a Jerusalem market, we went to Yad Vashem. The museum, along with our tour guide Noam, gave a powerful and emotional view into a dark part of Jewish and world history. The day served as a reminder of why the Jewish people need Israel and how far we still have to go to reach peace.
