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 â€“ 10 hardworking students â€“ 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!”
