I am excited to be participating in the Dream Travel - Teen Travel Initiative and raising funds for important projects in Israel. Jewish National Fund is supporting Israel and Israelis in a number of different ways. The money that I raise will go towards the Inclusion for Israel's special needs population, including horseback riding for children with disabilities, making parks more accessible, and more. One initiative that really speaks to me is integrating special needs individuals into the Israeli army because everyone deserves the opportunity to fight for their country.

If I meet my fundraising goal, JNF will provide me with a grant towards my own Israel travel experience, ensuring my opportunity to meet Israelis whose lives have been changed due to our support and to explore my own connection to the land and people of Israel.
