Not everybody can afford the money to visit Israel like I did as a teen on a 7 week organized tour. This first tour got me to go on a second one 3 years later ,again for 7 weeks. Like visiting anywhere 10 days is not enough to understand the ins and outs of a country but it is a start. Teens are naturally curious and Birth Right should help prod them.
