Reviews from #IsraelFreeSpirit #Arts trips:

It was the most unexpectedly enlightening experience of my life. Great friends, places and food.  Living the culture of music and performance was so inspiring. Make sure this is something you do.

As an acting student, traveling to Israel on the AE trip was the best experience of my life. I will never forget learning musical numbers at the Caesaria Amphitheater and performing with the entire group! 

Getting to experience birthright with a group of amazing and open artists allowed us to delve so much deeper into the ‘how’s’ and ‘why’s’ of Israel instead of just the ‘what’s’.

AE was an amazing journey that opened my eyes and ears to the music and culture of Israel and the Middle East. It reconnected me to my roots on a cultural level. It was definitely an inspiring environment full of friends and harmony and I can’t wait to go back!
