By Aryeh Younger, Yeshivat Har Etzion
 
Following my senior year  in high school, I decided to study at Yeshivat Har Etzion, and throughout the year,  I made many efforts to traverse the country, to discover the history and culture of the world’s newest and most original democracy.
 

Striving for a New Israel Education

<div class="masa-blog-title">Striving for a New Israel Education</div>

 
Like most American Jews of my generation, my first encounters with Israel were cultural. 
 
I saw pictures of people reading the newspaper while floating in the Dead Sea. 
 
I wrote notes to be placed in the Western Wall.

They sit on my tongue like coarse gravel, and biting down on them irks my teeth.
