Why 8 Olim Kids Love Israel

  • ARIANNA RICHTON, 9: My favorite part of the summer in Israel is going to Camp Ema. It’s crazy. We go to the pool and museums. Once we got shpritzed by the sprinklers. It was so hot that we were soaking.

  • SHUA GOLUBTCHICK, 9: I love living in Israel because of the Shoko (chocolate milk). When we first got here, I was allowed to have it three times a day, but now we’re only allowed to drink it on Shabbat.

  • ARI FEIGLIN, 9: I love living in Israel because when my parents first told me, I thought it would be like vacation. I really like that we can walk places and it doesn’t take so long to get around

  • ELIORA GOLD, 7: I love living in Israel because my favorite place is the Kotel on Yom Yerushalayim! Plus, I’m excited about our new baby and our first native-born Israeli!

  • SHIRA AND AZRIEL JAVARSKY, 6: We love living in Israel because it’s the land we should be in and we’re closer to the Kotel. And our favorite thing to do is ride camels!

  • ELISHA ERDFARB, 6: I love living in Israel because it’s the land of peace, and I can run out of the house and play with my friends. Also, it’s really funny when there are donkeys walking on the side of the street.

  • EITAN FROHLINGER, 7: My favorite place to be in Israel is everywhere because there are a lot of nice places. I really like the airport because you can watch the planes landing.

  • BOAZ SCHARLAT, 5: I love living in Israel because of the beautiful weather and people. Funny things happen too, like when I saw a cat eating a slice of pizza.
