I was not born into Judaism, rather, I was adopted into it

Birthright has been one of the most significant & life-changing experiences I have ever had. I was not born into Judaism, rather, I was adopted into it by desire for G-d & spirituality, as well as getting actually adopted by a Jewish family. The culture & love in Israel is overwhelming, but in a good way. I am so blown away by the beautiful sights, fun activities, & absolutely amazing friends that I have made. In just 10 days, my family has expanded by 40 people, all from different Jewish communities around the U.S. I will return to America a new man, a true man. This is an experience I will take with everywhere I go. Israel & Judaism will forever remain in my heart. Thank you everyone who has made this possible.
