Machon Maayan 2018-2019


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.”
