Through childhood to adulthood, the topic of Israel — the sole Jewish state — is vibrant, sacred, and ever-present. This graphic comic portrays the connection that many Jewish populations possess with Israel. The comic embodies the scrutiny, battle, and desire for this land after seeing all for which the country stands. Currently and historically, Israel has been fought over time and time again, though we have yet to see a period where the struggle has been resolved and the land left in peace. Israel’s journey thus far falls gently into the pages of Ha’Am, where, as a student-run Jewish newsmagazine, we are consistently representing the Jewish community and Israel to the truest and best of our ability.
