Seth's Birthright Adventure To Israel - My9 New Jersey

Seth's Birthright Adventure To Israel

Posted: Updated:

Chasing New Jersey's Seth Oclatis took a 10 day trip to Israel as part of his Birthright. The Birthright trip is entirely paid for by donors and the state of Israel. The trip was originally organized by Israel experts to learn about the heated political nature of the Middle East.

Forty Americans and eight Israelis accompanied Oclatis on the bus to explore Israel which is roughly the size of New Jersey. They went hiking through rivers, and waterfalls, and also covered themselves in mud from the Dead Sea and swam in the salty waters.

Although Israel has many conflicts, Oclatis never felt unsafe, there was an armed security guard with the trip members at all times.

If one of your parents has a Jewish descent, and you are between the ages of 18-26, then you are eligible to go on this free trip to Israel too!
