Volunteering in Israel

Gap Year, Part 1: Kibbutz Einat

After my last exams at prep school, I left for Israel as a volunteer. Even though my family had nothing to do with the atrocities, and my late uncle refused to kill Jewish women and children then, I think many of us wanted to make up for the past. In addition, despite all of my travels in Europe and Africa, I had never been to the Middle East, and it sounded like a good adventure and a break from studying. I did not know then that my planned stay of six weeks (between prep school and college) would turn into more than six months.
