What are you most excited about spending the year in Israel?
Learning about our heritage and connecting to the land and to the people of Israel 🇮🇱

I am addicted to olive oil…
What is something you accomplished recently that you’re proud of?
I am proud that despite the familial, societal, and academic pressure I felt, I decided to put an end to my exile and follow my own path.
What are you hoping to gain from this year at Meorot?
I hope to learn how to live as a Jew in my daily life, but also to get a more holistic understanding of our Torah and of the meaning of History. Last but not least, I hope to meet lots of amazing new people and build lasting friendships!
