About Me

My name is Lior Vaknin, on June 1st 2017 I left NYC to go on a journey to promote Israel and show the world how we can use Startup Nation in order to fight anti-Israel and and the BDS movement around the country. 

I gave talks at Universities, Jewish and communities, Synagogues and many other places. As I progressed in my journey, I started asking myself some of the toughest questions such as "Is Israel really the victim here?" "Is the concept of a Jewish state valid?" and other questions I wouldn't have dreamed of asking before.

A bit after the halfway point I decided I can't support Israel anymore and I stopped all my talks. 

Now, on the last 10 States of the journey, I share with people my experience of America as an Israeli/Jew and some of my insights and realizations as a spiritual being. 

This money will help us with our gas money, food and mechanical repairs (we're traveling with an 1982 Chevy Winnebago that does 8mpg). 

The hopes is writing a book after the journey ends and 

Thank you for your interest in my journey and for considering to help me finish my journey.


Thank Your For Your Support!
