To this day I owe many thanks to the birthright financiers and organizers for the opportunity they gave me. Truly a trip of a life time. Yes a bit of sex drugs and rock and roll, but this only furthered my curiousity for the country. Upon returning to Canada I joined the Israel Awareness Club at my school, became very politically conscious and am now dating an Israeli ! 10 days was not enough and most people can extend free of charge - yes birthright has an agenda which is not so secret - let young jews put a face to a name, and once on a first name basis, if such jews want to get to know the person, they can then make their own decision. Not one person on my trip did not have an incredible experience !!!
