What’s your favorite ISRAEL21c article and why?
I love this article because I was so passionate about this project! The ISRAEL21c hackathon was one of the most amazing events I have ever been to. I learned so much, and my team created a website in just 12 hours. We sent hundreds of letters to the volunteers that helped all over the world.
