Where do I start?
From beginning to end of trip- u always showed ur care
From the moment we started in Ukrainw we felt a breeze by our ancestors and it made us feel like we were with them
Spending Shabbos In mezibush i mean what could be better?
Going to all the kevarim singing nuggunim, reading our panim, crying all for each other we really really felt amazing
Thanks so much

This summer was so special and memorable in every way. Every single step had a history and a story to tell and I am so thankfu to the people who made it possible for me to see it first hand.

This summer was so incredible!
First, in Ukraine, we learned all about our Chassidic past and then in Israel we learned about our Jewish past. Everywhere we went, everything we did was fun as well as steeped in history. It’s an experience I know I won’t forget!
