I found out about Aardvark Israel from my grandpa, his friend’s granddaughter did Aardvark and loved it! I did some research of my own and totally saw why someone would love this program! I really wanted to come to Israel after my last program (a semester abroad) was cut short due to COVID, but I told myself that if I came back it would be to live in Israel but not like a tourist and Aardvark Israel has really helped me achieve this goal!

I intern at ‘Hineni’, a program that includes humanitarian aid and relief for the less fortunate, while promoting mutual respect amongst Jews and people of all faiths and nations.

Originally From: Morristown, New Jersey, and now lives in Jerusalem.

Fun Fact: I play five instruments, and both my mother and grandpa are rabbis!
