The Impact that Livnot has had on me: Livnot gave me a Jewish Identity, a knowledge of Judaism and Jewish philosophy, and a vision of my Jewish future. Twelve years after my trip, I am indeed pursuing that Jewish future with a family that has a strong Jewish identity and a connection to Israel. I have taken ownership over my Judaism and my Jewish learning because of the foundation Livnot provided to me. I know being Jewish is MUCH more than Hanukkah and the High Holidays. It’s about tikkun olam, preserving life, and making the mundane holy. I am forever indebted to Livnot and look forward to paying off that debt (though I can never do that fully).
