HELP JEWS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD COME TO ISRAEL WITH THE JEWISH AGENCY

Sixteen-year-old Tali Kastelman, originally from Cordova, Argentina, came to Israel for the first time through a student delegation organized by the Jewish Agency.

“This is my first time here and I’m in love with Israel”, she says. “Here I can walk around with my star of David necklace freely and without fear. I can’t stop being amazed at what I see here.

Everywhere in Israel I feel a special connection with the presence of God. I was especially emotional at the Western Wall (Wailing Wall), seeing many women like me, praying. This is something I’ve never seen in Argentina. Here I’m free to pray, to wear Jewish symbols, to talk about Judaism, and I even want everyone in Israel to know I’m Jewish.”
