It’s been 5 years since I’ve been Home. 5 years since I walked the streets of Jerusalem, touched the holy Western Wall and had my favorite candy from the Shuk.
I spent a year living in Israel and came back a different person. It was a year that made me into the person I now am today. Learning to live away from my family was difficult, but I learned to live with my whole family, Am Yisrael.
I can’t believe that in about 9 days I’ll be going back, finally going home! I catch myself singing “I’m coming home, coming home, tell the world that I’m coming HOME”. I’ve got a silly smile stuck on my face and it won’t be wiped off. I am so excited to be joining JWRP women’s trip. It will be a trip of a lifetime with 35 other women in the fashion industry and explore Israel through a fashion perceptive. As an observant Orthodox Jew in the fashion industry, I’m excited to learn and meet from the women on the trip; balancing the fashion industry while remaining true to our Jewish lifestyle.
