We also learn about security walls, disputed settlements, and the persistent challenges facing the region.

This summer, I spent a month in Israel living in Bat Yam, a suburb near one of Israel's major cities, Tel Aviv. I spent time traveling and volunteering at a soup kitchen called Fat Meir. I visited Hebron, a site of major struggle between Israelis and Palestinians (top left photo, near Hebron). I also participated in some street art in Jerusalem (bottom right), and visited a helicopter crash memorial in the north (bottom left). I had an amazing trip and learned a lot!
