Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told participants at the annual Taglit-Birthright event Sunday (June 25) that he wanted them to “take everything that you see, absorb everything, get it inside your mind and your heart, and then take it all and share it with others.

“Tell others about the miracle of Israel!” he said. Taglit-Birthright is a free 10-day educational trip offered to Jewish young men and women ages 18 to 26.

“If you look around, you can see how rare and how wonderful Israel really is,” Netanyahu said. This is the real Israel. It’s a strong country, that is ready to defend itself against any threat, and its hand is outstretched in peace, a genuine peace, to all our neighbors.

“This is the real Israel – and you should tell everyone about it!”
