Undefeated Pro Boxer Dustin “The White Tiger” Fleischer is Headed to Israel with Birthright

My name is Dustin “The White Tiger” Fleischer, and I am currently undefeated at 6-0 with five knockout victories in the sport of professional boxing. My goal is to become the first World Champion who is a descendant of a Holocaust survivor in honor of my grandfather. My success in my career thus far relies heavily on passion and a strong belief in my heritage. For the next 10 days, I will be traveling to Israel for the first time on Birthright. This is an experience that I have been looking forward to for a very long time. Being that my Jewish lineage is essential to who I am, I expect that I will find even more inspiration and drive from this trip to take into my boxing career and life. Israel is the closest land to God, and every Jewish man and woman should visit. I am extremely excited and grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful program. I look forward to seeing my homeland and to have the chance to become closer to God. Share this journey with me on the Forward’s Scribe Community. I will be posting throughout my trip.
