“The Egyptians, the Babylonians and the Persians rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greeks and Romans followed and made a vast noise, and they were gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, and have vanished. The Jew saw them all, survived them all, and is now what he always was…all things are mortal but the Jews; all other forces pass, but he remains.  What is the secret of his immortality? ”  Mark Twain 1899

So why did all the nations of antiquity pass on, but not the Jews?  Lots of answers have been suggested, and I believe that at least one of them, is that the Jewish people nurtured their connection to the land of Israel and Jerusalem – even when they were exiled in the furthest corners of the Diaspora. Our connection to our home in Jerusalem has been passed down not with a key to a house and a physical address, but in our DNA with a hope and a dream that we will get there soon!

This year Jews all over the world   –  outside of Israel and within Israel – returned to remembering Israel/Jerusalem virtually.  And at Israel ScaVentures we are very proud of how we helped to share some amazing Israel experiences with our online Jerusalem, Israel and Festival Quests.  For some people –  this summer there will be a return to Jerusalem and we are waiting for you.  For others – the time hasn’t come yet – but we still have some AWESOME Jerusalem games for your families, your schools, your camps!
