They say that life is a journey. For Sloane Tabisel, a 25-year-old Jewish woman from Plainview, Long Island, who participated in a November Taglit-Birthright Israel trip, that journey started in a unique manner, especially when compared to the other members of her tour.

Tabisel was born into a Buddhist family in South Korea and, after being given to an adoption agency by her biological parents at birth, was flown to the United States at the age of five months, where she was adopted and converted to Judaism by a family from New York.
