Vlada Taits

As Gabby and Jilly made announcements last week about how they celebrate the Jewish holidays, I will be adding on to it and sharing my connection. My family is very connected to Israel and the country has been a huge part of me growing up. Both of my parents immigrated to the U.S. from the former Soviet Union but neither of them could come directly here. My dad went to Israel because at the time Israel was a new nation, only been founded in 1948 and accepting refugees. My dad became a citizen and had to complete mandatory military service for two years. Israel still has mandatory military service to this day. He made his best friends living there and they are people who are very close to my family. After hearing so much about it from my dad, I stayed there for a month this past summer. I did a program where I learned about the history of the country, saw the sights, but also to give back to the country. I participated in all sorts of community service events such as planting trees, picking fruits, and painting schools. I'm very grateful and proud to have a connection to Israel.
