I recently had my first ever trip to Israel. Experiencing it for the first time with Moria as our tour guide was incredible. She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and non-judgmental. There were a few times that I was overwhelmed with the beautify and awesomeness of Israel and I just cried. Moria hugged me tight, and just let me be with my emotions. She told me not to think - to allow myself to just feel. I will never forget that. I would love to do another trip to Israel and have Moria as my guide!
