My first trip to Israel was in the summer of 1970, three years after the Six Day War. I was a staff person on United Synagogue Youth Israel Pilgrimage and was honored to be able to go there at that stage of my life. In those days, the regular buses of Egged were used for tours, at least the one I was on. Among the first things I learned about riding on these buses was that at the top of the hour, when the radio on the bus beeped, everyone was to be silent so we could hear the news.
