Sixteen-year-old Gemma Lyons and 17-year-old Jack Travers, both from Hampshire in the UK, went to live with David and Tzippi Sha-ked and their five children last week in Nof Ayalon, a community near Modi’in. …

Gemma and Jack both listed the Western Wall as the highlight of their trip, even though Jack describes himself as an atheist.

“I’m not religious, but it was amazing,” enthused Jack.

“I’m really interested in the Wall,” said Gemma, who identifies as a Christian. “You can study it as much as you want, but when you go there, it’s totally different.”
