Help send Israel to the World Cup
"Representing the country of Israel is such a unique and amazing opportunity. While I do not regard myself as very religious, my time in Israel has really connected me with the incredible culture and history of the country. I'm looking forward to learning more as I return this summer specifically for lacrosse."
"Playing for Israel last summer at the European Lacrosse Festival was a memorable experience. We were initially a group of strangers with a wide range of lacrosse skills who came together through the tournament. We advanced to the Championship Game where we faced Global Players, a team made up of talented, experienced NCAA players. We had already lost twice to them earlier in the tournament, so the odds were not in our favor. In a physical match, we went to overtime where we ended up pulling the victory, 8-7. The whole scenario reminded me of Miracle on Ice! I remember walking off the field sweaty, weak, and so drained of any energy, but with so much pride and a huge smile on my face. I'll never forget my incredible teammates and the amazing experience of competing for Israel."
"I am playing in honor of Taglit-Birthright. This organization is really the reason I'm playing lacrosse for Israel. My Birthright trip truly opened my eyes to the beauty of the country, its people, and its rich culture. This trip led me to return to Israel last summer when I helped run youth lacrosse clinics. Whenever I leave, I can't wait to get back; Birthright is responsible for this longing to return by exposing me to the incredible country of Israel. I will be forever indebted!"
