This was a highlight of my professional career. I had never been to Israel before, and doing it as a Skilled Volunteer for Israel made it a much more meaningful experience than if I had gone as a tourist. I got to know Israel, through the people I worked with and their lived experiences in a deep and profound way. I truly learned as much as I shared my knowledge and expertise.
