Influential and fun

I'm so happy I decided to be a part of Way More Israel's inaugural summer program. It was an influential summer and I'm grateful that I committed to it. For starters, is there really anything better than living in the Old City of Jerusalem? I was practically a hop, skip and a jump from the Kotel. So few people can say they had the opportunity to live in such a historical, spiritual place. My internship was fun, and I was even able to intern in the same building as one of my good friends from the program! The classes and the people were really what made this program so special to me. Within the first few days, I could tell I was living with amazing women, and a really fabulous madricha (staff member). Our classes were really interesting. We had Orthodox rabbis and teachers, many of whom shared similar secular backgrounds as we did, so they understood where we were coming from. In fact, it was these classes that inspired me to come to seminary. So happy I chose this program! It was a hugely influential 7 weeks, and I'm so grateful to the Heritage House and WMI for the summer of a lifetime.
