The Israeli Air Force´s elite rescue team left her for dead.
She pierced her nose
She hiked the desert.
She fell in love.
And then she left.
It was a big year.
The September after graduating high school, Nancy Wassner´s friends went to college. She went to Israel instead. Follow Nancy from behind the Chocolate Curtain of Hershey, Pennsylvania, through the beginnings of Israel´s Second Intifada, down cinnamon-scented ancient streets to the shore of the Mediterranean Sea and back to New England. And learn as she does to live in a way that can only be described in Hebrew.
Nancy Wassner is a graduate of Wesleyan University’s College of Letters and certificate program in Jewish and Israel Studies. She is often on the move and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
