Mapping the Journey

Is it possible to creatively process an intense experience that is a teen tour to Israel? Toward the end of their visit to the country, BBYO Passport participants from Israel Journey 3/ Plus2, and Euro-Israel Journey, did just that during Kol HaOt’s “Mapping the Journey” session.
The teens first studied images in an artistic, wordless scroll that details the Abraham’s journey in the biblical story of “The Binding of Isaac”. Then, as a group, they created a color legend which itemized the highlights and emotions of their own trip to Israel. Using collage, each participant created their own map of their journey, using images that expressed their individual story of their Israel experience.
As the teens presented their awesome scrolls to the entire group, they relived their unforgettable BBYO journey – a pilgrimage that will be remembered for many years to come.
