In February, I traveled to the West Bank as part of the Olive Tree Campaign - Keep Hope Alive
Here I share some of the impressions of the land and the people, indelibly imprinted on my heart. This is not a travel log, nor is it a political position paper. I have taken pains to limit my observations to what I saw and experienced rather than what I have read, heard, or think to be true about the current situation in Israel. I found myself deeply affected by the people I met, and I have used their own words when possible to tell their story.
