My first Livnot program, and the two weeks I spent in Israel during it, felt as if I had discovered a new room in my home after living there my entire life. The best part of Livnot was the inexplicable power of Shabbat, the magic of Eretz Yisrael, and specifically Tzfat.
The best Shabbat of my life. It was magic, the music, the sunset, the food. I want more!!!
It was very relaxing and a refreshing experience. It reminded me why I enjoy being Jewish.
Livnot allowed me to have an experience that filled me with an incomparable sense of awe that I carry with me to this day.
Shabbat can be what you make of it.
Livnot is my favorite part about Israel. I love it here and I love Tzfat and I want to come back.
The meditation in the morning helped me connect to why I was here and how to be happier.
In total awe of this place. Each experience created the whole.
It has reconnected me to my heritage and strengthened my bond to Judaism. I have learned more on this trip about Judaism than I have ever learned. It has drastically changed how I plan to continue my path. I feel like brush has been cleared to show me a path I did not know was there. I plan to continue learning.
Taking time out of every week to spend time with the people around you and appreciate what you have is important.
It was nice to experience a calm Shabbat rather than my typical Tel Aviv Shabbat.
There’s no words that can fully explain the positive impact Livnot and Tzfat had on me...I loved Shabbat with the group. It was a very powerful time and I can’t wait to go back and do it again.
Livnot added to my Israel experience more than you know. I came here set in my ways and opinions about Judaism and now a whole new door of discovery has been opened.
My life has been changed for the better because of this program and I cannot be more thankful for spending an incredible week here.
This was one of the best hikes I’ve ever gone on. The landscape was incredible.
It gave me more spirituality than I’ve ever experienced in Israel and now I have a place to spiritually recharge.
I didn't know how much my current spiritual beliefs were paralleled in Kabbalah and Jewish beliefs. I thought I was searching outside myself but this program helped me recognize that I was really seeing my inner light.
I was shocked by the amazing things we where doing like painting the bomb shelter and cheering up the sick at the nursing home with our music. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I will never forget.
I received more in this one week with Livnot then I have in the whole month I’ve been here through MASA. All the things Livnot offers, spiritually, intellectually, and otherwise, has been incredibly inspiring and motivating.
Livnot provided me with the clarity I needed for what I want out of my living experience in Israel.
I had never experienced keeping Shabbat like that before. Singing still continues to be a way I express my spirituality!
