Cid Carver could be a poster child for Taglit- Birthright. The free Jewish heritage journey brought her to Israel for the first time, and by the end of the 10 days she had decided to stay.

“They brought soldiers to join us starting on the fifth day, and I ended up being friends with all of them and got to meet some of their families afterward,” she says. “I had never felt more at home or more certain of anything, and to this day I can’t explain it. I just said to myself that this is where I want to live for the rest of my life.”
