Day 36 – Closing Our Journey at the Capital

Posted on August 2, 2021

by Samuel Mitchneck      Our last day was one of the most interesting days, in my opinion. It began breakfast (a hotel-quality blueberry muffin). We then went into a conference room and discussed our meetings in DC and our meeting in Baltimore. This was followed by a drive into DC, specifically to the Holocaust Continue Reading »

Day 34 – DC

Posted on July 31, 2021

by Nate Stitt Good morning friends! Today is a bit too warm for my taste, but it’s a D.C. day- one full of debates, laughter, and back-to-back meetings — a true manifestation of this trip. The morning began a bit later than usual, which was greatly appreciated. I ran downstairs and grabbed a bagel. The Continue Reading »

Day 33 – DC

Posted on July 30, 2021

by Emily Neuwirth        Today was our first Etgar day in our Nation’s Capital, so consequently we were all dressed to the nines (which essentially meant khakis, polos, and skirts- but baby steps everyone).

by Micah Pierandri Today is sadly the last day of our journey. We started our day by going to the National Museum of African American History and Culture where we learned a lot about the history of Africa before the slave trade, slavery, and African American history in the United States.

by Robert Horn   We began our third full day in Washington, D.C. by going to the National Coalition for the Homeless.  We heard two unique stories from a gentleman in his twenties, and a woman in her fifties, both of whom have experienced homelessness.  It was inspirational to see how nicely both individuals have Continue Reading »

Posted on August 3, 2019

by Jesse Eick Today, our second full day in D.C., began with a meeting with The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank that advocates for “free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.” This meeting provides the oppositional perspective to our meeting with United for a Fair Economy in Continue Reading »

Day 33 – Washington, DC

Posted on August 2, 2019

by Hayden Goldberg Today marked the beginning of our final stop: the first full day in Washington DC. The day’s content did not reflect that though, as we had a packed day of dense meetings at AIPAC, Greenpeace, and J-Street. In addition, we were joined by a New York Times reporter who is covering us as part Continue Reading »

Day 32 – Philadelphia/Washington, DC

Posted on August 1, 2019

by Ryder Moses-Rosenthal Early this morning, we packed into the bus and headed for Philadelphia once more. We visited The Constitution Museum, and were given a great introduction to the museum by a speaker. The speech was mainly focused on the founding of our country, and I found it very powerful. Billy mentioned to us Continue Reading »

They informed us of the current problems between the US, Israel, and other countries, and how we can get involved. As a current vice-president of the Jewish Student Union and Continue Reading »
