Can we form a Jewlicious Delegation?

Who knew New York Yeshiva boys could be so self sacrificing? They have taken it upon themselves to form a delegation to cultivate Zionist ties with the Island nation of Palau.

The Republic of Palau, made up of of an archipelago of gorgeous tropical islands, is one of several Island nations in the South Pacific that consistently (and curiously) votes with Israel in the UN. The others are the Marshall Islands, the Solomon Islands and Micronesia (any of which this duty-bound Zionist blogger would be willing to visit, for hasbara purposes, of course, just as soon as someone decides to sponsor such an important and historic mission, wink wink).

The students said their diplomatic mission helped cement ties between Palau and Israel, as well as helped advance cross-cultural exchanges between the Orthodox Jewish high school students and their Christian counterparts in Palau.

“These are 10 guys who are spending their vacation going halfway around the world – 10 hardworking students – not because it’s what we do for a living, but because of who we are and what we are meant to do,” said Moshe Kamioner, 18, one of the students on the trip.

To which he added “Bring me another Maitai!”

  • “You’ll need to get permission to visit the outer islands, and women may have to go topless: Many islands still require that tourists dress in the local style – loin cloth for men and lava-lava skirts and no top garment for women” (from the link)

  • I’m buying a ticket as we speak. I can’t wait to openly wear a loin cloth – those damn cops keep giving me tickets when I try to do it here in the US.

  • Well,
    only today will I condone yeshiva bochers to travel to someplace where where the sun shines other than Israel because it’s been raining for the past couple of days and in some places like here in Ariel, for over a day straight with virtually no let up.

    Too much of a good thing is not that good. Luckily, Ariel is on hilltops, and luckily too that the Arabs in the area are too because I wouldn’t want to be in low-lying areas this week.

    At least the kinneret is getting tanked as well:

  • Hello All

    Just saw this as crusing the web. Yes that was I who made that post. The Maitai was great and so was the experience. Both from the vacation point of view but even more from the life experience. I recommend everyone give it a visit though, it truly is the 2nd most beautiful place in the world (the 1st being yerushalaym).
