The New England Patriots take a journey to Israel. It is amazing to hear their thoughts about Israel. Also, to see the journey they took, physical and spiritual across the country.
New England Patriots
The New England Patriots are an American football team from the greater Boston area. The team was founded in 1959 and since the 1970s have been playing in the NFL, (National Football League). The Patriots have become one of the most successful football teams. They’ve won the Super Bowl 6 times!!
Robert Kraft is the owner of the New England Patriots. Kraft and his family have donated millions of dollars to many causes. One of them is American Football in Israel. He is the sponsor of the American football stadium in Jerusalem. Robert Kraft won the Genesis Prize and bought many of the team players past and present to visit Israel and see the Holy Land first hand.
The Genesis Prize was founded in 2012 and is an award given annually. This award is given to Jewish People who show excellence in their field. This prize is to show people that they should be proud of being Jewish.
Journey to the Holy Land
No matter what religion you are a journey to the Holy Land of Israel is something spiritual, and enlightening. It is truly inspiring to see how these players felt on their journey to their Holy Land. No matter how long you spend in Israel there is always more to see.
These American Football players traveled to the Sea of Galilee, the Jordan River, Tel Aviv, the Dead Sea, and Jerusalem. Many of these players said they found their trip transformative and enlightening. The media abroad does not show Israel’s best side. Coming to Israel and seeing things with your own eyes will change your perspective of Israel.
Additionally, seeing pictures of Israel doesn’t do the place justice. You have to come and experience it. There is no greater feeling than walking up to the Western Wall and touching it. Knowing all the history that happened here it’s truly amazing to be walking the same path.
Finally, one of the players said: “This place is so beautiful it is impossible to put into words”. I agree with this 100%, Israel is such a beautiful place you should come see it for yourself.
