Exploring my heritage is something I started in the past few years and seeing Israel for the first time, really getting a sense of its history and culture – I now truly understand why it’s so special. — Julian Edelman
Julian Edelman plays for the New England Patriots.
After his team won the Super Bowl, the wide receiver traveled with Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Greater Boston (CJP) to Israel “for a trip loaded with both meaning and excitement. His 10-day journey took him to the Kotel, to the streets and beaches of Tel Aviv, to the desert and to a deeper understanding of the Jewish homeland.”
