Why did you choose to attend Machon Maayan?
Ari Solomon, who is in charge of International Students at Stern, told me about it! I also really like the ideology of this seminar.
What’s the best advice that you’ve ever heard?
A rabbi once told me to not care what people think about you.
What was one time that you felt proud to be Jewish?
I was with a group of people at University and they started asking me questions about Shabbat. I explained it to them and I realized how Judaism is really special.
What is your favorite Israeli slang word or phrase?
My favorite Hebrew slang term is ke-ilu, which means, ‘I mean, like.”
