     In her article, Dyonna Ginsburg writes about the necessity for young Jews to volunteer on service-learning programs in Israel.  She explains that “young Jews have not told us they do not want to volunteer in Israel – they have simply said that they want to volunteer on issues close to their hearts” and they often choose to do their volunteer-work close to home.  Ginsburg points are all valid and I also agree that young Jews from all over the diaspora can benefit from the “Jewish peoplehood and collective responsibility” present in our Holy Land.  This article is definitely worth reading through and taking advice.  Ginsburg’s insights can benefit the future of Judaism and the way Jewish teens relate to their fellow Jews in Israel.
