Aish.com’s beloved video blogger Lori Palatnik is in Israel this week with a large group of women from the United States, Canada, Mexico and Chile. It’s all part of the JWRP – Jewish Women's Renaissance Project.

Of the 180 women that had been scheduled to come, 100 courageously stood against social pressures and flew to Israel, despite the ongoing war that has seen missiles fall incessantly amidst 50% of Israel’s population.

Aish.com caught up with Lori on the third day of the trip, as she shares how standing with Israel in this critical time is creating meaningful memories that will last a lifetime.For updates on Lori’s trip, visit JWRP’s Facebook page.
