Day 35 – DC

Posted on August 1, 2022

By Casey    Today was the last full day of the 2022 Etgar 36 journey. We got on the bus at 9:30 AM to head to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The museum felt almost suffocating as I was walking through it. The atrocities kept getting worse with every panel I read, every photo Continue Reading »

By Clarissa   Over the course of the past couple days, I’ve loved having the opportunity to learn more about the US’ relationship with Israel. While at JStreet, we learned that one of the main differences between AIPAC and JStreet is that AIPAC aims to strengthen the relationship between the US and Israel whereas JStreet Continue Reading »

Day 31 – Philadelphia and DC

Posted on July 28, 2022

by Rafi Josselson  The morning was like any other morning. I woke up 15 minutes before our wake up time due to Gadi’s advice, I got changed in the bathroom and filled up my water bottles (we have had a lot of hot and humid days). I went down the elevator with Joli, I found Continue Reading »

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). As we all ran towards the bus, excited for the day ahead, conversations began brewing, because today was a Continue Reading »

Day 36 – Washington, DC

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. It was really powerful Continue Reading »

Day 35 – Washington, DC

Posted on August 4, 2019

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 »
