“The speakers during the Social Justice track have helped to form the way I hope to interact with Israel in the future: what organizations I want to support, what causes I will champion to my American friends, and what information I need to spread in the world. The social justice track is an important class for students living in Israel for a year or beyond; as we become adults, love for Israel must encompass the poor, the agunot, the disabled, and all those suffering within its borders.”
