Growing up in a Jewish Russian family I didn’t understand the significance of the land. I grew up without Jewish rituals, traditions or even extended Jewish family, my family vanished during WWII. I became aware of Jewish culture only when I immigrated to United State in 1979. Soon after I went to Israel where I realized that the land of Israel is more than a place, it’s a body and spirit for the soul of Jewish people. Israel is a place where you began, where you belong and what you truly are. I don’t travel to Israel, I return there.
