"Hineni Shnat was one of the most incredible experiences of my life to date. It was a truly meaningful journey that allowed me to become more engaged with my Judaism, and form a deeper connection to Israel. Being so immersed in Israeli society for 10 months was a special, eye-opening experience, which also helped me form my own unique connection to Israel. We saw what it meant to live in Israel and do our part for society. I had the opportunity of seeing Israel through the lens of a First Aid responder for MDA. I wouldn’t have been able to get that anywhere else."

“Shnat gave me a space to explore and fall in love with my Judaism. People believe when shnat finishes that the journey is over however I believe it is just the start; shnat is the time when the seeds of curiosity and passion about Israel, Judaism, and a world view are sewn that will grow for the rest of ones life. I am and will be forever grateful I got to have a year to think about how I want to live my life and about the type of person I want to be in a place that is so inherently connected to my identity.”
