On the first day we all gathered in a room about the size of a football field. There were cameras everywhere, traditional music blasting, and the warmth of Judaic pride radiating through the air. We were not sure who was about to speak, but before we knew it, he came out. Who was this person? We could not believe it. He was the Vice-President of the United States of America.
I have never heard such an affirming speech declaring the positions of the United States towards our home land of Israel. What an opportunity! The feeling of vindication; the power and might of our great country to protect another great country. What a delightful experience. Thank you Panim BBYO!
