Hummus Where the Heart Is is an online destination where travel stories meet life at home, and how culture and religion can shape your personal interactions, involvement in student organizations, jobs and internships, and an overall appreciation for different norms around the world.
This summer I was lucky enough to engage on a once-in-a-lifetime, 3 week journey throughout the country of Israel. And let me cut to the chase – every Jewish teen is given 1 “all expenses paid” trip to Israel as their “right of birth into Judaism,” although little did I know how vast my experience on the Birthright Israel program would alter my perspective on world travel, religion, culture and leave me craving more.
On this site my updates will vary between previous reflections of Israel-specific culinary favorites, the best hiking views, and the must-see attractions. Then to my current day-to-day life as I participate in opportunities to support and connect with the Jewish community around me.
