TEENS RULE THE WORLD
Me and Zane explored MT. Hertzel on July 16th.Me and Zane have learned interesting facts about the man who found Zionism and proposed a Jewish state Of Israel for all the Jews who want to come together as one.This man stood out to us because he is a person who never gave up in his quest to create a Jewish state until he died in his early 40s.Me and Zane felt connected to the man because we both dont' give up in activities we engage in and we both try to be leaders everyday .On top of MT. Hertzel we saw the graves of Golda Meir,and Theodore Hertzel which was amazing. Golda Meir was the first women Prime Minister in the world,and without Theodore Hertzel,the state of Israel would not be a reality.The museum of Theodore Hertzel explained a lot of interesting things about the man by explaining his challenges of constantly being rejected by foreign ministers in attempts for gathering support for the Jewish state. Hertzel's legacy still lives on to this day based on the two books he wrote.Me and Zane were inspired by this amazing man and hope more adventures will be made to discover other famous people,and sites!!!!!!.The one thing that we both discovered is that each leader of the Jewish people was unique in his/her way which makes this country extremely diverse in ideas and people.
We understand that Israel itself is not in the best position in the world because its surrounded by various nations that constantly try to disturb the peace within the small country.The reason why we chose the poster is because we as Jews need to be proud,strong,and brave everyday of our lives.Even though Israel is in a bad position,this poster symbolizes the strength the Jewish people have both physically,and mentally against their enemies that try to harm them.The fact that The person is raising the flag shows that no force,large and small can break the will of the Jews and our flag will always be visible to everybody.Even though we are small in numbers compared to the worlds Christians,or Muslims,we are powerful as people,and powerful as nation with our tremendous influence.
We think the shabbaton was special because when the week is over people need to relax and have a good weekend.In this celebration of shabbaton we made new friends with other Jewish teens like us who want to explore their Jewish Heritage and have fun along the way.We played soccer, basketball, football,and had amazing conversations .The main reason why we found this Shabbaton special was because we didn't know most of the kids here and we got to know them with this great experience,All of us are excited to go to Israel this summer to expand our current knowledge of Israel,and our Jewish Heritage. My name is Brian,and I'm currently the person on the left,and i love making new friends,and making everyone smile,laugh and have fun every step of the way.I have never been to Israel,and this will be my first time going with other teens like me who wish to develop themselves .Hello everybody,my name is Zane,and i am the person on the right.With comparison to Brian,i love to fun while making new friends along the way.We all play sports,and find ways to learn everyday.We all hope ARTEL,and Israel will be a special Experience for us,and for all wishing to develop their identity.
