Day 31 – Philadelphia

by Isabel Intrater

In the morning, we had our framing discussion on Israel, as we are meeting with J Street and AIPAC in a couple of days. We talked about the key dates and terms in Israel’s history, and it was interesting to hear varying view points, even just in regards to basic definitions. For example, we had a thoughtful conversation about the concept of the “right to return,” and whether or not it is, or should be, a right of the Palestinians.

We then got on the road to head to Philadelphia. However, we unfortunately busted a tire and so were stuck on the side of the road for a bit. A popped tire is certainly not going to stop us from getting Philly Cheesesteaks, so we ended the day at the famous Jim’s steaks for a late dinner.
