“Does it matter that there is a separate Jewish people? And what is their mission? That should be a question that every young Jewish person is asking, and I think a trip [to the developing world] is an important opportunity to raise that question…” -Rabbi Zvi Hirschfield
Feeling like strangers or outsiders isn’t a new experience for the Jewish people. But when it comes to spending time in the developing world, navigating what makes us different as Jews – our religious or cultural practices, our identity and values – can bring with it unique challenges.
