Hi! My name’s Amy Weiss and I’m from Miami, Florida. I grew up in New Jersey until I was 13, and maintain my accent while at Stern College. At Stern, I’m a major in Political Science and play for the tennis team. Alon Moreh is one of my favorite places in Israel because it is exactly the spot where Hashem commanded Avraham: “lech lecha.” On Parshas Lech Lecha, I joined the community in its shabbaton dedicated to the monumental moment in history that took place there. It is a town of people deeply committed to fulfilling the promise that Eretz Yisroel, in its entirety, will belong to the Jews. I have not been back to Israel since my seminary year, and I’m so grateful to return on a program as awesome as GIVE! I can’t wait to meet all of our GIVErs!
